What does it mean to be known? I’ve been thinking a lot about how we all tend to project images of ourselves and how we all tend to create images of others. It’s something that compels me to get to know people on a more real basis, but it also compels me to be as […]
About John Anthony Dunne
John holds a PhD from the University of St Andrews where he worked under Prof. NT Wright.
Okay, so I have not had nearly enough conversations about The Cursed Child. I really really need to vent about this story but I’ve just not had any opportunities. So instead of bottling it all up, I need to get a few more things off my chest about this story. A few weeks ago I […]
So yesterday I read through “the eighth story” of the Harry Potter series: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Since it has not been out for very long I will refrain from posting any considerable spoilers. Considering that this story is the script for a play that has been performed in London for several weeks […]
As part of my nostalgic reflections on the completion of my PhD, and the formal celebration of that a few weeks ago at my graduation, I’ve been thinking about the various trends and themes that characterized my time in Scotland. In particular, I was thinking about the bookends of my studies: how the beginning and […]
Two weeks ago today I graduated with my PhD from the University of St Andrews. Being back in St Andrews was a wonderful experience. It was great to be able to show my parents around for the first time. As I was retracing my steps and hitting up all of my favorite places around town […]
Did you all see the article, “50 Reasons Why I Don’t Drink,” make its way around Facebook? Typically when I see stuff like this I just roll my eyes and carry on with my business. But for some unknown reason I decided to give this article a quick glance. Most of the points were predictable. […]
I am pleased to say that my newest article has just appeared in the latest issue of Sehnsucht: The C. S. Lewis Journal—the only academic journal devoted exclusively to the life and work of C. S. Lewis. My article is on C. S. Lewis’ (arguably) greatest work of fiction, Till We Have Faces, and looks […]
By now I’m sure you’ve all seen the two teasers for the new Star Wars movie and, more importantly, the fabulous new trailer that came out a few weeks ago. I trust most of you have felt the blend of nostalgia, childhood wonder, and excitement that the anticipation for this movie has elicited in me […]
After submitting my PhD thesis a few weeks ago I was able to spend some time at the Swiss L’Abri as a guest lecturer. Everything about my experience there was wonderful and I thought I’d share a little bit about it. If you’re not familiar with L’Abri, which was founded by Francis and Edith Schaeffer, […]
I am currently in the midst of that delightfully anti-climatic state of liminality that comes with submitting a PhD thesis. Of course, once you’re done with the thesis, you’re not actually done at all because you still have to defend it. And so, that means that I basically still need to be working on my […]
