Potter Lecture

Yesterday for my class on The Politics of Harry Potter and the Hunger Games, we had a guest speaker, Bethany Barratt, who wrote one of the books we read for class, come talk to us about her thoughts on human rights and the series and how it relates to politics. We had a great conversation with her in class about how the Harry Potter series can have common daily political analogies and themes that were relevant to human rights, political mobilization, and youth in politics.

After our class discussion we all went over to Atherton for dinner where we got to discuss more closely some of the themes and get to know her on a more personal level. We also got to eat some delicious Asian food! Good job, Aramark! Finally, we ended our day with listening to Barratt speak about human rights more generally and how the language used to describe it has shifted post 9/11.
