Open Seminar - Harry Potter and Childhood Studies

While J.K. Rowling´s Harry Potter stories might seem to be merely fantastic, with their cast of wizards, witches, Dark Lords, and magical spells, our suggestion is that they have a serious emotional core, and that it is this as much as their powerful elements of fantasy that explain why children become so deeply involved with them. It is significant that Harry Potter, and several other major characters in the stories, have extremely troubled childhood histories.

We shall suggest that the stories represent ways in which the difficulties arising from such histories are experienced in the inner worlds of these characters, and that the stories can be understood as imaginative representations of different kinds of childhood and adolescent development.

This conference is an experiential learning event designed to support reflection at a time of significant change.

At international, national and community level this is a period of “shifting sands”.  With so much personal and social movement, what does it take to hold one’s place?  Equally, how do we find the courage to encounter the new, instead of just defending one’s position.  These are the proposed themes of the conference.

This event is for all those who are interested in exploring aspects of leadership, followership and their role in the workplace and elsewhere. The weekend consists of a range of small group, large group and inter-group events which enable participants to learn about the impact they have on others, and the impact others have on them, in a managed context.

The conference makes use group relations methodology. It is designed and delivered by staff and associates of the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex.
