The Centre for Irish Studies in Aarhus is the only centre for Irish Studies in Denmark and one of two such centres in Scandinavia. The centre offers teaching in Irish history, society, literature and culture in compulsory courses and elective seminars on undergraduate and graduate level. The centre plays a key role within NISN, the Nordic Irish Studies Network, and publishes the peer-reviewed Nordic Irish Studies journal, in co-operation with DUCIS (see link) and NISN.
CISA has hosted three international conferences and a number of international seminars and symposia since its inauguration in 2000 and, as part of the Department of English at Aarhus University.
Our main objective is is to help advance the study of Ireland in Denmark by facilitating research and teaching in the fields of Irish history, culture, literature and politics as seen in a broad European and international context.
