Oh yes, it’s Granger Watch! This second episode is very special. It was recorded live at DePaul University’s “Harry Potter and the Pop Culture Conference” during our panel “From Representation to Resistance – Re-imagining Harry Potter to Reflect our Struggles.” Contents include:
– Kennedy Healy drawing connections between “the boy who lived” and the radical potential of disability politics [text here].
– Joy Ellison (that’s me!) claiming Neville Longbottom as learning disabled [text here].
– Amazing insights from audience members on inter-generational organizing and using Harry Potter to inspire our resistance.
– Very critical commentary on wizard poop and the Hogwarts-to-Azkaban pipeline.
