Harry Potter and the Issue of Race

Upon researching critique of Harry Potter, a common theme that seemed to reappear was the issue of race within the novels. Ultimately I expected the resources to focus on the treatment of muggle’s within the novels and how muggles are presented in an inferior light; some resources did discuss this, but others branch further than the world of Harry Potter and relate the issue back to our own world, discussing how JK Rowling writes race and how people of colour are represented in the novels and how this relates to the politics of the world we live in today.

The following posts will discuss how I feel towards each resource and how I could/whether I would possibly use them for an essay; although overall, I found all resources to be informative in one way or another.
