Professor Myers has been working on and off to organize this conference with Neeta Omprakash since 2011 and overcoming various obstacles, finding herself back on the Dakshinachitra Campus — the site of her 2002 Fulbright Fellowship — both fortuitous and rewarding.

These include Deborah Thiagarajen (who has guest lectured at UConn), Benny Kuriakose, Nirupama Jayaraman, Shyju PJ, Krishnaraj Chonat, Asim Waqif, Veer Munshi, Charmi Gada Shah, Sandhya Bordawekar, Ravi Agarwal, Swetha Bhatad, Surekha, Parvathi Nayar, Preeti Joseph, Lina Vincent Sunish, and Maya Kovskaya.
