This is a long shot, but I never get enough audience members, so I might as well see if I can drum up any business here!
I am the India chair for the Midwest Popular Culture Association, our annual conference is next weekend(October 6th-9th) in Rosemount, just outside Chicago near O’Hare. I’ve organized a lovely panel on Indian popular culture for Sunday afternoon, as I have for the past few years, and I am already dreading no one attending, because no one ever comes to the India talk.
So if you are in the area and are interested, stop by! Here is the link to the website for more info: http://mpcaaca.org/info/conference/
