​This year The Harry Potter Academic Conference will host a special section of the conference dedicated to questions and concerns arising out of J.K. Rowling’s comments about members of the trans community. We invite and welcome proposals on any aspect of this issue. ​Please feel free to submit to this special section whether you identify with the LBGTQ+ population or not. In keeping with the conference's goal to create a safe, inclusive space for lively discussion and criticism, all viewpoints and persons are welcomed. 

Please indicate that your submission should be considered for this special section in Question 8 (How would you descript your planned presentation?) on the Proposal Submission form.
