From Raising Arizona to Fargo to The Big Lebowski, the Coen Brothers have created a diverse, yet oddly coherent vision of a postmodern West. With the critical success of No Country for Old Men and the recent release of True Grit, Western American Literature has decided it’s time to take a look at the significance of their representations of the spaces, landscapes, characters, and cultures of the West. Instead of a special issue, we would like to publish a speculative conversation about their work. We encourage WLA members to collaborate to present a panel at the Missoula conference, which we will tape and consider for publication.
