CONFERENCE - CALL FOR PAPERS

HARRY POTTER GOES TO UNIVERSITY
Thursday 15 & Friday 16 January 2004
Flinders University, Adelaide, South Australia

http://ehlt.flinders.edu.au/english/potter_conf/

Harry Potter is a household name yet there is only a small amount of
research done in this area. The Flinders University English Department is
holding a two-day inter-disciplinary conference to discuss the Harry Potter
books, movies, merchandising, and the various social reactions which have
occurred among different groups. We welcome 20 minute papers dealing with
any aspect of Harry Potter. Selected papers will be collected for a
refereed publication. Teachers please note: attending this conference can
be accredited as professional development.

Anticipated areas of research are:
- Screen Studies
- Cultural Studies
- Theology
- Children's literature
- Education
- Scottish literature

Proposals should be submitted in the form of an abstract of about 100-500
words in an electronic format (preferably Word) by Monday, 10 November. We
will require a full-text of the paper one month after presentation.

Please email your abstract to one of the following conference organisers:
