Summary:"Cultural politics in Harry Potter: life, death and politics of fear is the first book-length analysis of topics such as death, fear and biopolitics in J. K. Rowling's work from controversial and interdisciplinary perspectives. This collection brings together recent theoretical and applied cultural studies and focuses on three key areas of inquiry: wizarding biopolitics and intersected discourses; anxiety, death, resilience and trauma; and politics of fear and postmodern transformations. As such this book: - provides a comprehensive overview of national and gender discourses, as well as the transiting bodies in-between, in relation to the Harry Potter books series and related multimedia franchise; - situates the transformative power of death within the fandom, transmedia and film depictions of the Potterverse and critically deconstructs the processes of subjectivation and legitimation of death and fear; - examines the strategies and mechanisms through which cultural and political processes are managed, as well as reminding us how fiction and reality intersect at junctions such as terrorism, homonationalism, materialism, capitalism, posthumanism and technology. Exploring precisely what is cultural about wizarding politics, and what is political about culture, Cultural Politics in Harry Potter is key reading for students of contemporary literature, media and culture, as well as anyone with an interest in the fictional universe and Wizarding World of Harry Potter"--
