Exciting news today! I have officially been accepted to present at the Magic is Might 2012 conference at the University of Limerick, Ireland. Does this mean that I can now consider myself an international scholar? The conference is two days in July and the plan is to make a Eurotrip out of it. I’ll be presenting on the same stuff as my thesis: language, perspective and culture in Harry Potter. I’m going to be presenting on a topic I love with a bunch of other people who love Harry Potter…in Ireland. All I have to say is that I’m pretty stoked about it. And don’t worry–I’ll keep you posted.
