Examine the Canon

We talk a lot about all of the fan theories that were wrong...but what about the ones that were right? Ren Hen’s soul splitting theory haunts us to this day, Snape loving Lily sounded like bad fanfic, and who could forget John Noe’s infamous Mr. Blood?

Film Studies

The music and orchestrations of the Wizarding World films have become an iconic part of the Harry Potter fandom. John Williams, Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Hooper, Alexandre Desplat, and James Newton Howard all created truly memorable scores that evoke strong emotions in Jo Rowling's stories. However, every fan has their opinions about which film had the best score, who was the best composer, and whether "Hedwig's Theme" should have been used in Fantastic Beasts. Join us in a celebr...

Questions of the Wizarding WorldExamine the Canon

In this session, panelists representing multiple ethnic backgrounds discuss the (mis)/representation of their communities within Harry Potter canon and imagine how culture would inform magic, and how magic would inform culture, in both wizarding and Muggle worlds. Through this discussion, we will cross-examine the White, European, pseudo-Christian Wizarding culture of Harry Potter to answer questions like: What would be our culture’s predominant attitude towards magic? How might...

Beyond the Books and FilmsFan Creation

Wizard rock is more than a music genre; anyone who has spent more than a few minutes at a show can tell you that. Over the years, a community has formed, and it’s become almost as much about the community as it is about the music. Songs have become rituals and anthems, concerts feel more like family reunions (except they’re the kind you actually want to go to), and most of us have filled our dressers with nothing but t-shirts made by the people whose music fuels our daily lives. Come chat wit...

The Muggle World

It's not hard to find a character in the Harry Potter universe who struggles with their identity and how it impacts their standing in the wizarding world. Often this identity is depicted through the lens of blood status, and it's rare that the characters discuss how the intersectionality between race and other identities shape people in the wizarding world. How does the intersectionality between race and other identities shape people in the fandom?
