15 & 16 April 2004
Flinders University School of Humanities, Adelaide, South Australia

Harry Potter is a household name yet there is only a small amount of
research done in this area. The Flinders University School of Humanities 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:
-  Cultural Studies
-  Screen Studies
-  Children's Literature
-  Gender Studies
-  Literature Studies
-  Education
-  Theology

Proposals should be submitted in the form of an abstract of about 100-500
words in an electronic format (preferably Word) by 30 January 2004. We will
require a full-text of the paper one month after presentation.

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