Magic, Technology, and Power: The Wizarding World's Problem with Justice

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Magic in the wizarding world of Harry Potter and technology in our ordinary Muggle world are two sides of the same coin. Both magic and technology enhance our natural powers. Their uses also shape our natural and social worlds. We will examine and seek to understand the socio-political effects of magic in Harry Potter - in particular, the wizarding world's profound and systemic injustices.
