WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: CHINA

Located in deep in the Guilin mountains, shrouded in mist and frequented by dragons that live in the multitude of winding rivers, the students of the Chinese Institute of Magic don their colourful wizarding garbs every September 1st for their return to school whereupon they are treated to spectacular opening festivities involving, but not limited to: choreographed martial arts performances from their combat professors, an assortment of acrobatic wonders, and “Mystery Mooncakes” specially made for the mid-autumn festival.

#BUT WAIT #HOUSES BASED ON THE ORIGINAL FOUR #THE TIGER THE DRAGON THE PHOENIX THE TORTOISE

#just imagine how powerful their magic is though #they’ve been developing it for almost 2000 years longer than western magic imagine how refined and beautiful

#harry potter being eurocentric was such a fuckin’ waste

#my favourite thing is how those of us who have grow up with harry potter are now saying “no that’s not enough” and are expanding the universe #like we’re all critically looking at the books and realizing everything that’s wrong with them and fixing it ourselves #and idk i think that’s amazing

it’s not wrong, she just didn’t have time in the books to expand on every little corner of the magical universe- they’re still amazing books, we’re just acknowledging how risk and diverse her world is and lamenting the fact that she didn’t choose to expand it because it didn’t really fit in with Harry’s story. It was “eurocentric” I don’t know, maybe because J.K. Rowling lives in Europe, and it’s easy for her to write in Europe, and it made sense for her to. It wasn’t a waste, it was her telling a beautiful and amazing story, and part of her gift to us was a world that we can expand on, but acknowledging things like- multi-cultural or worldwide magical schools. 

It makes sense that the books take place in Europe but the books only talk about Europe as if that is the only place with magic. THAT is what people are talking about when they talk about Eurocentrism. There was no allusion to schools or great magical feats outside of Europe. THAT is Eurocentrism, not the fact that they took place in Europe, but that that was all that was mentioned or cared about. And yes that is bad, it’s easily remedied, and it is a waste that it was so limited. Like the triwizard tournament could have been between Hogwarts, a school from China and then a school from one of the many African countries or from Peru or Mexico or just literally anywhere else but it was Hogwarts and two other European schools. That is Eurocentrism and that is a huge waste of potential.

I love the HP series and will love it till i’m dead and cold in the ground, but there is a lot of criticism that can EASILY be made about it, and the limited world view is one of them.
