Many of us cannot attend high-end conferences in the West for primarily two
reasons: economics and the unavailability of leaves from our institutes. It
is high time that we start rethinking the way we do literature and
conferences. We propose to form a society focussed on Literature and the
study of theodicy/theology/Evil/sanctity. We will especially focus on
targeted online paper readings through SKYPE, Yahoo or some other suitable
with-camera free chat service. Folks in other disciplines like IT etc. are
already well into such conferences.
There are of course some logistical problems involved:

a) Awarding of certificates.
b) Due to time lapses, finding a common time to be online.
c) Running a blog of the society.
d) Getting interested personnel to volunteer for a labor of love.

We invite you to join us in this venture and send us the following:

a) Brief bios.
b) Areas of Interest.
Please mention a time when you are generally online.

It is our belief that online presentations are the way to go in the future.
