About the Institute

The Ireland India Institute, at Dublin City University, promotes collaborative and original research on contemporary India.

Drawing on the cultural, historical and political affinities between India and Ireland, the Institute supports a variety of events and an international network of scholars and practitioners.


The Ireland India Institute is pleased to announce that its annual conference will be held 28-30 April 2021. It will be an online event.

Last year’s accepted papers presenters are currently being contacted. The Ireland India Institute will then decide whether or no to add a Call for Papers. This will be announced later on.

Any queries must be directed to india@dcu.ie. We will try to answer those queries within a reasonable time. Any apologies for potential delays.
