Daniel Clifford of The Oakridge School will be Reading His Paper, "On the Experience of Reading Dubliners" at the 2013 Dubliners Colloquium

The Oakridge School is thrilled to announce that one of its very own owls, Daniel Clifford, will be presenting his paper, “On the Experience of Reading Dubliners,” at the 2013 Dubliners Colloquium this February 6th. Congratulations Dan!

Dan Clifford is in his senior year at the Oakridge School. He is ecstatic to talk about Dubliners at the conference - it has become one of his favorite books. Besides talking about Modernist literature, Dan also enjoys rock'n'roll music (as well as music of any kind) and watching great movies and television. If you care, his favorites of each medium (at the moment) are Grimes' Visions, Charlie Kaufman's Synecdoche New York, and David Lynch and Mark Frost's Twin Peaks.

Mr. Clifford will be reading his paper during the second block of presentations in a session entitled “21st Readings of James Joyce’s Dubliners.”  The location of the session will be announced soon.

  1. I think that if Dan were just a few years older he would be holding a pipe, although it probably wouldn't be lit. In a few more years I look forward to learning that Dan Clifford has read the entire text of James Joyce's Ulysses, which was read completely by Dan's Aunt Shelley and twice by Dan's grandfather Bud McKechnie. (It was never read by 13 of Joyce's 17 biggest boosters in getting that novel published.) It seems as though Dan has come by his interest in James Joyce honestly as well as genetically.
