Welcome to the website for the International Indology Graduate Research Symposium (IIGRS)! After the success of the first three symposia held respectively at the University of Oxford (2009), the University of Cambridge (2010), the University of Sorbonne Nouvelle-Paris 3 (2011) and the University of Edinburgh (2012), we are pleased to announce that the fifth symposium will be held in Bochum on the 17th and 18th of October 2013. Further information is available on this website.
The IIGRS is an acronym standing for International Indology Graduate Research Symposium. In many ways the symposium grew out of the IGS (Indology Graduate Seminar) that Nina Mirnig and Virgina Greenfield have been organizing at Oxford for the past two years.
Here you will have the opportunity to read about some of the past lectures. We intend to publish as a retrospective blog the abstracts, handouts and eventually the comments that accompanied these seminars.
