As stated before, the colloquium will take place Wednesday morning, February 6th, 2013. Our plan is to have all papers read and evaluated in time for students to be notified of acceptance for presentation no later than January 8th, 2013. The committee of evaluators consists of faculty persons from almost all the above mentioned schools, so there will be a diversity of perspectives and opinions in the process of judging all the great work by the 80+ students who decided to submit.
Once again, we at The Oakridge School appreciate everyone’s involvement and contribution thus far, and we look forward to the conversations this February.

Some More Video Posts from Oakridge Students:
Here’s a couple more video postings by some Oakridge Philosophy students. The first clip is by Ben F., who is writing on the early childhood stories.

Check it out:
The next video is of Dan C. who is writing a more Montaigne-styled essay which explores the musicality of Joyce’s narrative tapestry. Dan likens Joyce’s collection to a “concept album” with recurring melodic motifs which echo, develop, and distort as the text moves from story to story. Here’s Dan’s clip:
Once again, we look forward to seeing everyone this February 2013 for the James Joyce Dubliners Colloquium at The Oakridge School. Happy Holiday!!
