This one-day course dives deeper into the Harry Potter series, exploring some of the key themes including the representation of gender, sexuality, class, and ethnicity. Questions we’ll be considering include: is Hermione Granger an empowering character, and does Dumbledore’s sexuality matter?

We’ll discuss the politics and ethics of Potter, considering the structure of Harry’s wizarding world and what that might say about our own society.

This course is ideal for those with a pre-existing knowledge of the basic plot, characters and setting of Harry Potter, although you don’t need to be a complete Potter-geek to attend.
