CALL FOR PAPERS: INTEGRAL STUDIES

2007 Southwest/Texas Popular Culture and American Culture Association Conference

According to the website of the California Institute of Integral Studies, "Integral studies are a response to the
growing need to synthesize the fragmentary aspects of contemporary thought and culture into a meaningful
whole. […] In exploring the interplay of mind, body, and spirit, integral education connects the spiritual and
practical dimensions of intellectual life. The integration of the wisdom traditions presents an evolution of
consciousness that has never been more relevant and crucial than it is today" (www.ciis.edu).

The Lebowski Cult: An Academic Symposium
28-29 September 2006
The Executive West
830 Phillips Lane
Louisville, Kentucky

The aim of this small symposium is to invent a critical program equal to
the task of interpreting The Big Lebowski (1998) and addressing the
Lebowski cult that has quickly grown in its wake, both the legions of
more or less public fans as well as the cultural politics, resonances,
and after-affects of their fanaticism.
