Muggles, Magic and Abuse
Description Muggles the world over were captivated by the charm of Harry Potter's magical adventures, which spawned a new generation of readers and taught us lessons about everything from compassion to perseverance to the importance of standing against evil. But there's an even darker side to Harry's tale, one that, in reality, affects millions of children across the globe: abuse and neglect. Join us for a discussion on how this affected the young Potter (and the older one, too) and how the reality compares. We should probably talk about Lucius Malfoy, too. Angie Hunt, ICDVP, is the Housing Program director for HOPE of East Central Illinois and has spent 18 years working with survivors of domestic violence and their children. Throughout those years, she has trained hundreds of individuals on the dynamics of domestic violence, as well as presenting on the state and local level. Recently, she was selected to participate in and graduated from the Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence Leadership Academy. She is a member of the South Central Illinois Continuum of Care (SCICoC) Board of Directors, the SCICoC Planning and Assessment Committee, The Gender and Sexual Diversity and Sexual Violence Prevention Team at EIU, and several other boards and committees. As two of her passions are spreading awareness of abuse and all things Harry Potter, this might be her favorite presentation of all time. She also thinks people should know she usually brings candy when she presents.

The Boy Who Lived: Harry Potter and the Culture of Death
Twenty years ago, readers became acquainted with Harry Potter, whose fame rests largely on being “the boy who lived.” J. K. Rowling’s epic series has invited millions of readers to reflect upon what it means to live by considering what it means to die. The condition of mortality is not what Harry needs simply to outrun. In fact, the series appears to be a long meditation on what it means to embrace the condition of mortality. We live in a culture that tends to deny the reality of death at the same time that it luxuriates in ultra-violent imaginings of death. Without the benefit of contemporary Ars Moriendi (or advice on the art of dying), we can nevertheless turn to imaginative works like the Potter series for philosophical reflections on the connectedness of being in the world and leaving it. Dr. Suzie Asha Park is a professor of English at EIU. She earned a Ph.D. in English at UC Berkeley and a B.A. in English and in African and Asian Languages and Literature at Duke University. While her undergraduate interests included pre-med studies, English and music, her passion for literature won out in the end. Her areas of teaching and research interest include British Romanticism, the novel, poetry, women writers, sentimental culture, literary theory, information theory and the medical humanities.

Immunity and Contagion: Liberalism, the Age of Bio-Politics, and the Tree of Life
CC Wharram, Director of EIU’s Center for the Humanities, will help commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Great Influenza pandemic by addressing the long history of biopolitics in his talk about the 300th anniversary of smallpox inoculation. We think of biopolitics as a condition brought about recently, or at the very least in the 20th century, yet scholars in varying fields of research have argued that the study of immunology, with its roots in the 17th and 18th century, is key to understanding our human condition at the beginning of the 21st century.

The 1918 Influenza: Impact, Implications and Uncertainty
One hundred years ago the “Spanish” influenza pandemic took an estimated 675,000 American lives. Ninety-nine percent of deaths occurred in people under 65; nearly half of those were between the ages of 20-40. It was the most severe pandemic in recent history, with global deaths exceeding 50 million people. With little understanding of the causation and risk factors associated with H1N1, public health was woefully unprepared. In total, four influenza pandemics have occurred: 1918, 1957, 1968, and 2009. Each pandemic has provided valuable lessons for public health. Developments since the 1918 pandemic have consisted of vaccines, anti-viral drugs, and the establishment of a global surveillance system by the World Health Organization. Other tools such as social distancing, good hand hygiene and cough etiquette assist in the slowing the spread of influenza. In the United States today, more than 200,000 individuals are hospitalized for flu-related complications. And over the past three decades there have been some 3,000-49,000 deaths each year. With the increase in growing populations, urbanization, and mega-cities, the opportunity for the spread of infection increases the likelihood of another influenza pandemic. Despite many uncertainties, the study of past pandemics may help public health develop future planning for timely responses. Comments A specialist in the field of epidemiology and human diseases, Dr. Simons’ research interest involves infectious diseases and their respective preventive methods, surveillance and distribution of disease. Dr. Simons serves as a Certified Reporter for EpiCore, a disease notification dissemination service associated with ProMED (Program for Monitoring Emerging Diseases). Dr. Simons is a Professor in the Department of Health Promotion where she is the graduate coordinator and teaches Principles of Epidemiology and Epidemiology in Public Health. Dr. Simons joined the Department of Health Promotion Faculty in August of 1992.

Harry Potter & the Cult of Celebrity
“Celebrity is as celebrity does,” Gilderoy Lockhart tells Harry Potter when cautioning him about seeking too much attention. Harry, of course, is doing no such thing, but the obtuse Lockhart cannot recognize that. Whether characters in the Harry Potter series seek fame or eschew it and how they handle fame when it comes their way reveals a lot about their, well, character. What do Harry, Ron, Hermione, Viktor Krum and others have to teach us about fame? What can we learn from the infamous Gilderoy Lockhart and Rita Skeeter? This program will explore those questions and others, including what Dumbledore had to say about the perils of fame for “The Boy Who Lived.” Lola Burnham is a professor in Eastern’s Journalism Department, interim director of Student Publications, and editorial adviser to The Daily Eastern News. One of her research areas is media ethics, and she enjoys using the Harry Potter books to connect to her research topics. She has many fond memories of taking her children to Harry Potter book release parties. She is also still wondering why her letter from Hogwarts never arrived and suspects that nargles are to blame.
