Harry Potter´s Magic and the Market: What are Youth Learning about Gender, Race, and Class?
AbstractThis paper focuses on the production of such magical thinking in the Harry Potter book series for kids. The Harry Potter series tells the story of Harry Potter who, at the age of one, is orphaned when Lord Voldemort, the evil which Must-Not-Be-Named, kills his parents. Harry is brought up by his mother's Muggle (or, non-wizard) huffy sister and her frequently-fuming, bombastic husband who, despite the obvious wealth of Harry's parents, receive neither private payments nor public assistance for the baby Harry's childcare.
