Chestnut Hill College will host its Seventh Annual Harry Potter Conference in October 2018. The Harry Potter Conference is an annual, interdisciplinary academic conference held at Chestnut Hill College that provides a forum for scholarly presentations arising out of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.
In 2015, the College welcomed three plenary speakers. Loris Vezzali, professor at University of Modena and Reggio Emilia joined the conference via Skype. He has contributed to “The Greatest Magic of Harry Potter: Reducing Prejudice” in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology (2015). The College also welcomed Karin Westman, associate professor of English at Kansas State University. Westman shared her publication: “Blending Genres and Crossing Audiences: Harry Potter and the Future of Literary Fiction.” The final plenary speaker was Maria Tatar Ph.D., the John Loeb professor of Germanic languages and literatures, and chair of the Committee on Degrees in Folklore and Mythology at Harvard University.
In addition to the lectures, Chestnut Hill College offers a $15,000 scholarship to the best high school essay during the Annual Harry Potter Conference. The scholarship is applicable to Chestnut Hill College School of Undergraduate Studies and will be awarded each year for four years of full-time enrollment. The award is contingent upon the student’s application and acceptance to Chestnut Hill College.
