Title:The Geography of Censorship: Communities, Challengers, and Harry Potter
Author(s):Knox, Emily J.M.
Subject(s):censorship
intellectual freedom
geography
Harry Potter
Abstract:The Harry Potter series was one of the most censored books when it was first published. Through the use of the census and other publicly available data attempts to answer the following questions using the Harry Potter series as a case study: Is the perception of the pervasiveness of challenges accurate? Are there any commonalities among communities that experience challenges? Are some types of communities more prone to challenges to others? What are the characteristics that might unite these communities? The paper investigates the commonalities and differences among 23 communities that experienced challenges to Harry Potter during the years 1999-2007.
