Isère is a department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in eastern France named after the river Isère. Isère is one of the original 83 departments created during the French Revolution on March 4, 1790, it was created from the main part of the former province of Dauphiné. Its area has been reduced twice, in 1852 and again in 1967, on both occasions losing territory to the department of Rhône. In 1852 in response to rapid urban development around the edge of Lyon, the communes of Bron, Vaulx-en-Velin, Vénissieux and Villeurbanne were transferred to Rhône. In 1967 the redrawing of local government borders led to the creation of the Urban Community of Lyon. At that time intercommunal groupings of this nature were not permitted to straddle departmental frontiers, accordingly 23 more Isère communes found themselves transferred to Rhône; the affected Isère communes were Chaponnay, Communay, Corbas, Décines-Charpieu, Genas, Jons, Meyzieu, Pusignan, Saint-Bonnet-de-Mure, Saint-Laurent-de-Mure, Saint-Pierre-de-Chandieu, Saint-Priest, Saint-Symphorien-d'Ozon, Sérézin-du-Rhône, Solaize and Toussieu.

Most on 1 April 1971, Colombier-Saugnieu was lost to Rhône. Banners appeared in the commune's three little villages at the time proclaiming "Dauphinois toujours" Isère was the name of the French ship which delivered the 214 boxes holding the Statue of Liberty. Isère is part of the current region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and is surrounded by the departments of Rhône, Savoie, Hautes-Alpes, Drôme, Ardèche, Loire. Isère includes a part of the French Alps; the highest point in the department is the Sub-Peak "Pic Lory" at 4,088 metres, subsidiary to the Barre des Écrins. The summit of La Meije at 3,988 metres is well known; the Vercors Plateau aesthetically dominates the western area of the department. Inhabitants of the department are called Isérois. Population development since 1801: The President of the General Council is Jean-Pierre Barbier of The Republicans; the Grande Chartreuse is the mother abbey of the Carthusian order. It is located 14 miles north of Grenoble; as early as the 13th century, residents of the north and central parts of Isère spoke a dialect of the Franco-Provençal language called Dauphinois.

It continued to be spoken in rural areas of Isère into the 20th century. Isère features many ski resorts, including the Alpe d'Huez, Les Deux Alpes, the 1968 Winter Olympics resorts of Chamrousse, Villard de Lans, Autrans.
