A two day conference hosted by
the School of English, University of St Andrews
17-18 May 2012, Kennedy Hall, St Andrews, Scotland

With the conclusion of the film franchise and the launch of Pottermore.com, the series is receiving increased academic consideration in conferences, articles, and monographs. However, relatively little work has been done directly engaging with the series as a literary text. This conference attempts to begin redressing that lack.
