Adam Schrock of The Oakridge School will be Reading His Paper "James Joyce, Ace Philosopher" at the 2013 Dubliners Colloquium

The Oakridge School is very pleased to announce that one of its very own, Mr. Adam Schrock, will be presenting his paper, “James Joyce, Ace Philosopher,” at the 2013 Dubliners Colloquium.

Adam Schrock is a nine-year veteran of The Oakridge School and is currently in his senior year. He intends to graduate and enroll at the Cockrell School of Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin and study chemical engineering (although his major will likely change numerous times). He wrote his Dubliners Conference submission to appease his philosophy teacher, Mr. Colley, a man without whom the conference would not have been possible. His paper’s subject matter relates to a recent philosophy lesson concerning the concept of “being towards death” and to the political atmosphere contemporary to the novel’s setting and authorship. Adam prefers not to talk about himself (even if it is in third-person), so he hasn’t much left to say. He is glad to have been able to participate in the first conference of many that are sure to come.

Mr. Schrock will be reading his paper during the second block presentations in a session entitled “Literature, Philosophy, and The Dead.” The location of the session will be announced soon. Congratulations Adam!
