"How are things at your house?" — Family Dynamics in the Harry Potter Novels (50 minutes) - Dave Martin - The Harry Potter novels are mostly acted out at Hogwarts. That's the center of the story. Yet in the background are the families that the characters come from. We eventually learn about some of these families. What kinds of families were they? What were the family dynamics that shaped the main characters? What can we learn about how families work — or don't work - in the real world from the Harry Potter novels?
