Memorials in Harry Potter: A Scholarly Conversation

This event has already taken place, please don't try to go to it!
Memorials in Harry Potter

In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, JK Rowling describes a statue of the Potter family in Godric’s Hollow’s village square and a memorial sign in front of the house where James and Lily died but never explains where they came from. Listen to a theory about when these memorials were likely to have been erected and learn how you can write your own academic paper about The Boy Who Lived!

Tolonda Henderson is an Instruction and Reference Librarian and resident Harry Potter scholar at the GW Libraries. Her recent paper, “The Statue and the Sign: The Origins and Significance of the Memorials to the Potter Family,” won Best Graduate Paper in Science Fiction and Fantasy at the 2017 meeting of the Southwest Popular and American Culture Association (SWPACA).
