The study combines theories of myth, popular culture, structuralism and poststructuralism to explain the enormous appeal of »Star Wars« and »Harry Potter«. Although much research already exists on both stories individually, this book is the first to explicitly bring them together in order to explore their set-up and the ways in which their structures help produce ideologies on gender and ethnicity. Hereby, the comparison yields central insights into the workings of modern myth and uncovers structure as integral to the success of the popular genre. It addresses academic audiences and all those wishing to approach the tales from a fresh angle.

What if there is much more to the Harry Potter saga than a simple tale of adventure and fantasy for kids? “Yes, there is much more,” is the guiding premise of the annual, academic gatherings at Edinboro University known as The Ravenclaw Conferences. Since 2011, faculty and students have met in Edinboro to deliver papers and discuss the many intellectual and ethical issues raised in this story of an orphan boy’s journey from being a nobody to becoming the Chosen One of prophecy. In The Ravenclaw Chronicles, the reader will find select articles developed from these conferences, most from professors, but a few from student presenters. There is even one original short story of Harry Potter fan fiction. These reflections come from diverse perspectives: namely, philosophy, history, English literature, media studies, and world languages.
