A group of AHRC funded researchers travelled to India last week to present their research at an exhibition style event hosted by the British High Commissioner in India, Sir James Bevan. A range of projects were presented, many of which were included as case studies in an AHRC publication, launched the same day, which details UK-India research projects and partnerships from fields as wide ranging as music, drama, history, religion, architecture and English literature.
The showcase aimed to raise the profile of the AHRC in India as well as to provide the opportunity for AHRC to explore future potential links and interactions. The event was supported by RCUK India, a team based at the High Commission in Delhi who help the Research Councils with their work in partnership with India based organisations.

Watch and Listen: A podcast recorded at the event is available for you to hear more about each of the showcased projects.
As mentioned in an earlier post, Early Career Researchers can apply to spend time in India under the AHRC’s International Placement Scheme. A competition is run annually to support eligible scholars on short term placements in Delhi, hosted by the Sarai Research Programme at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, (CSDS) one of India’s leading research institutes.
