The C.O.W.S. Homoeroticism and White Supremacy in The Big Lebowski

Monday, September 11th 8:00PM Eastern/ 5:00PM Pacific

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes the return of Dr. Martin Kevorkian. A professor at the University of Texas Austin and author of Color Monitors: The Blackface of Technology in America, Dr. Kevorkian has been a guest on The C.O.W.S. dating back to 2009. We always appreciate hearing his analysis of White Supremacy in films and look forward his thoughts on a new set of films. On this broadcast we’ll review these four films: The Place Beyond The Pines (2013); The Big Lebowski (1998); I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore (2017); and Little Boxes (2016). Non-white actors are bit players in these flicks as Melanie Lynskie, Jeff Bridges and Ryan Gosling take center state. A major theme in these works – and most entertainment – celebrates White violence and vigilante attacks. We’ll pay special attention to the homoeroticism that saturates The Big Lebowski. As the film centers around White men bowling, we’ll ask Dr. Kevorkian if Dr. Frances Cress Welsing’s theory on the racial significance of bowling is corroborated in the Cohen brothers cult classic.
