About the centre

The Centre for Irish Studies in Aarhus was founded in 2000 and aims to advance the study of Ireland in Denmark by facilitating research and teaching in the fields of Irish history, culture, literature and politics in European and international contexts. The Centre's Affiliates at Aarhus University come from diverse interdisciplinary research backgrounds. From October 2021, the activities of the Centre are twinned with those of the European Research Council project Classical Influences and Irish Culture. The project hosts a regular Work-in-Progress research seminar and is planning three international conferences in 2022.

The Centre has played a key role within NISN, the Nordic Irish Studies Network, and publishes the peer-reviewed Nordic Irish Studies journal in co-operation with Dalarna University Centre for Irish Studies and NISN. CISA has hosted numerous teaching, research, and outreach activities since its foundation and welcomes engagement from the Danish and international Irish Studies community!
