The Politics of Harry Potter
Who'd have thought that Harry Potter was the perfect lens through which to examine power and accountability in democratic and authoritarian regimes, the dynamics of group entities and the appeal of populism? Actually, Kimberly Twist did! The SDSU assistant professor in political science created a One-Unit Weekend course around the topic: “The Politics of Harry Potter” is Friday, March 10 and Saturday, March 18 at SDSU. As always, One-Unit Weekend courses are open to the public.
