Centre For Adaptations
It All Ended: Harry Potter and Popular Culture
A one-day conference

Venue: De Montfort University, Leicester, UK
Date: Wednesday 29 February 2012

J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels and Warner Bros’ film adaptations constitute one of the most successful media franchises of the modern age. Now that both books and films have reached a spectacular conclusion, this conference aims to assess Harry Potter’s place in popular culture.

We welcome papers which look at any aspect of the Potter phenomenon, from creative, artistic or industrial evaluations, through to case studies of related products and fan communities.

Proposals (of no more than 300 words) should be sent to: James Russell jrussell@dmu.ac.uk by Friday 2nd December 2011.
