Some of you may have already been aware of this, but in September of 2006, there was an academic symposium where learned people submitted and presented papers they had written on their philosophies and theories regarding The Big Lebowski. I'm not always with it, and I just happened to find out about this last week.
I was immediately interested in reading some of these papers. I looked under the contact information for the symposium and fired off an email to both Ed Comentale, Associate Professor of English at Indiana University, and Aaron Jaffe, Assistant Professor of English at University of Louisville.
Well last night I heard back from Professor Comentale. They're working on taking all of the papers and turning them into a book. So that's definitely something to keep an eye out for in the future. Professor Comentale also likes the podcast and mentioned maybe trying to meet up to talk about Lebowski stuff. I don't know about you guys, but I think this is awesome. Maybe we could do an episode with him in the near future.
Don't forget to write in with any comments or questions about Episode 7. We're recording Episode 8 on Friday and our topic will be Uli Kunkel or Peter Stormare as some people know him.
