Welcome to CISA

  • The only centre for Irish studies in Denmark

About

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.

  • The Centre for Irish Studies and AIAS are proud to present Emilie Pine as our keynote speaker for the two-day international and multidisciplinary conference ‘Politics and Narrative in Ireland’s Decade of Commemorations’.

    Emilie Pine is currently very active in the media with her new publication ‘Notes to Self’, a ground-breaking collection of taboo-shattering essays on topics such as fertility issues, feminism, and sexual abuse. She will open the conference with a talk on 'The Memory Marketplace: Gender, Witnessing and Performance’.

  • The Dictionary of Irish Biography is now open to students at Aarhus University, with funding from AIAS and the Embassy of Ireland! It can be found through the State Library's data base.

    The Dictionary of Irish Biography, a collaborative project between Cambridge University Press and the Royal Irish Academy, is the most comprehensive and authoritative biographical dictionary yet published for Ireland. It contains over 9,000 signed biographical articles which describe and assess the careers of subjects in all fields of endeavour, including politics, law, religion, literature, journalism, architecture, painting, music, the stage, science, medicine, engineering, entertainment and sport.
