Note(s): Far from being a work of fiction that acts to re-awaken the capacity for expanded imagination and wonder in its readers, the Harry Potter series for the most part functions to reinforce the techno-scientific worldview dominant in Western societies within which the non-human world is seen primarily as a resource to be used for the promotion of human welfare and the fulfillment of human desires. Animal existence in, and for, itself is sidelined within the Harry Potter novels. Kate Boundy is a Ph.D. student in the Comparative Studies program. She has an MA in English from the University of New Hampshire and an MA in Women's Studies from Florida Atlantic University. This paper was presented at the Comparative Studies Association 2008 Conference: Interdisciplinarity and Environmental Sustainability.
