Harry Potter has given the study of popular culture a unique platform for exploring the nature of human identity. "Potter Studies" is developing into a vibrant interdisciplinary field of scholarship. This collection of new essays examines issues surrounding race, class, gender, sexual orientation and personal virtue, both in the wizarding world and in our own. The contributors discuss an array of meanings and contexts in the Harry Potter universe relating to identity issues, and the ways in which these manifest in fandom cultures and real-world schools and businesses.

About the Author:

Christopher E. Bell is an assistant professor of communication and director of graduate studies in communication at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. He is the founding area chair of Harry Potter Studies in the Southwest/Texas Popular Culture Association.

Review:

"Wizards vs. Muggles adds to this rapidly emerging field...and adds to it admirably. Nearly every essay is a high quality, well-researched, and well-edited contribution to our understanding of identity construction inside and outside the Potter universe"--Mythlore.
