The Lebowski Cult: An Academic Symposium
28-29 September 2006
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. The 5th Annual Lebowski Fest (http://www.lebowskifest.com/fests.asp) scheduled to follow the symposium, will be included in the conference registration.
