Hockaday Lit & Philosophy responds to Oakridge....

After reading Oakridge's posts on Aristotle and Dubliners as well as reading some other pieces that are part of our curriculum, Hockaday students tried to synthesize a variety of ideas that the colloquium opened up for us. Our readings of Cornell West prompted further thoughts about the power structures in Dubliners, especially "Araby," "The Sisters," and "The Dead," which are the stories we focused on the past few weeks. We would love to hear your responses. Meanwhile, we thank Oakridge for its video and for all the ideas that  they as well as Greenhill students offered these past weeks. And a special thanks, too, to Mr. Garza and Mr. Colley for their inspiration and organization!
