Get ‘Lost’ for the Night

A university-sponsored event, free and open to the public

Series Finale Re-watch and Discussion on May 26th

The series finale of the television series LOST has garnered much attention in the media, and for good reason. For years the show has been hailed as groundbreaking, criticized for redundancy and trite storytelling, and dismissed as too complicated in its plot. Not surprisingly, for seven years LOST has been a centerpiece for “watercooler” talk .

With the series “finale” at hand, we invite you to attend a discussion of the cultural and literary impact of LOST.  We also invite interested parties to present their readings of the significance of the show, with particular attention paid to the potential “reverberations” the show will have.

The “conversations” will take place on the University of North Florida campus in Jacksonville, FL on Wednesday, May 26, from 5:00 – 10:00 pm.

The order of events:

5:30 – 6:30, scholarship panel

6:30 – 7:00, refreshment break

7:00 – 9:00, the series finale

9:00 – 10:00, a group discussion

Help us as we say farewell to a show and greet a field of inquiry in popular culture studies.

Please RSVP to englishdept@unf.edu by Wednesday, May 19, if you plan to attend.

Please forward panel/presentation proposals to lhowell@unf.edu by Friday, May 14.
