Open discourse in a conservative environment could well be the motto of the ISKCON Studies Conferences.
The ISKCON Studies Conferences bring together academics and other thinkers from inside and outside ISKCON to share ideas and research in a spirit of respectful enquiry. All aspects of ISKCON and related topics are open territory and there are no taboo subjects.
ISKCON Studies Conferences take place in ISKCON temples providing a nurturing atmosphere (and good food) to those who wish to engage in candid and open dialogue.
The aim of the Conferences is to provide food for thought for attendees and to provide the basis of articles for future issues of the ISKCON Studies Journal.
Conferences are thematic and suggestions for new themes are welcome.
