Course Description

ENG 180DS
Race, Class, Wizardry: Harry Potter
Fall

This number is a difficult one on which to speculate. J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels have a broad base of readership, and students in all majors have had contact with the books in this series. I would imagine that this would be a natural fit for English majors as well as for majors in Ethnic Studies and WGSS, since we will be taking up issues on race, class, gender, and sexual orientation as they manifest in both Rowling’s own novels and in the critical (and fan) response to her work. I anticipate that at least half of the enrollment will be upper-division English majors (15 students)
