My Sweet Lord: The Hare Krishna Movement Turns Fifty

One Day Conference

23rd April 2016


Bath Spa University

Keynote speaker: Professor Kim Knott (University of Lancaster) 'ISKCON@50: Achievements and Challenges in the British Context'

This is an opportunity to mark the Hare Krishna movement's half century with a mix of academic papers combining retrospective on the last fifty years with reflections on future directions, a panel discussion debating what happens when a New Religious Movement isn't so new anymore and a mix of activities such as a demonstration arti, classical dance, and chanting of the Mahamantra. There will be a chance to hear from devotees as well as academics, and also enjoy some wonderful food.

Guests include His Holiness Bhakti Charu Swami, one of ISKCON's international leaders.
