Throughout this volume, scholars analyze how the Harry Potter series has shaped this generation's views on everything from celebrity to political resistance; from reading to memory to identity; from amusement parks to fan and pedagogical spaces online; from how they understand the past to how they will shape their future. Many of the essays are penned by members of the Harry Potter generation itself, detailing the myriad ways this fantasy series has pervaded their lives. Expansive and well-researched, this collection offers insight - not only into the Harry Potter novels-but also and perhaps more importantly, into the way these novels have affected this generation's understanding of their place in the world and their capacity to create it anew.
