Welcome to this website!

The Goethe Society of India (GSI) was founded in 1997. It seeks to promote scholarly research on the work of the great German Poet, Thinker, Administrator, Scientist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832), and on the Classical German Heritage together with its relationship to contemporary cultural developments. It emphasises the European context of this heritage and its comparative international dimensions symbolised by Goethe’s notion of World Literature. The GSI actively promotes an academic dialogue between India, the German speaking countries and Europe. It functions as a free association of scholars and its conferences are documented annually by a yearbook.
