Description
Butterbeer, Cauldron Cakes and Fizzing Whizbees: Food Sharing as a Cultural Marker in the Harry Potter Series with Leisa Clark - In the Harry Potter series, the Wizard characters' consumption of special foods that are unavailable in the Muggle world serve reinforce their own identities, while at the same time constructing the feeling of "belonging" at Hogwarts and in villages and homes secretly imbedded within the Muggle world. Food is a great indicator of cultural identity and the shared foods we eat can serve multiple purposes in delineating those who belong from those who do not. By carrying on a literary tradition of food as a cultural marker, the Harry Potter series fits neatly into a body of work that celebrates abundance, family and belonging.
