About The Author

Anthony Gierzynski

Kathryn Eddy

Without a doubt, the Harry Potter series has had a commanding effect on the Millennial Generation. Several children grew up immersed in the world of the boy wizard—reading the books, dressing up in costume to attend midnight book release parties, watching the movies, even making and competing in Quidditch tournaments. Beyond what we know of the fame of the series, however, nothing has been published on the question of the Harry Potter effect on the politics of its young readers—now voting adults.

Looking to involve his students in exploring the connections between political opinion and popular culture, Anthony Gierzynski conducted a national survey of over 1,100 college students. Harry Potter and the Millennials (Mobi/PDF) tells the captivating story of how the team designed the study and gathered results, what conclusions can and cannot be drawn about Millennial politics, and the challenges social scientists face in studying sociology, political science, and mass communication.

Gierzynski’s captivating analysis of media’s impact on political views, integrated with the enjoyable Potter story details, makes for an irresistible project that social scientists can use to work a little magic in their classrooms.
