Harry Potter, gay identity politics or globalization?

This is an article on Harry Potter in last Sunday’s WaPo. It recounts how different scholars are deailing with both the book and its popularity. Some are pretty silly and about what you’d expect from today’s academics. One guy connects it to gay in identity politics, while another compares its popularity to Globalized fast foods! Jean Bethke Elshtain’s opinions are the most sensible.
