WHO WE ARE
The Canadian Association for Irish Studies/L'association canadienne pour etudes irlandaises (CAIS/ACEI) has been serving students of Irish culture for over thirty years, seeking to foster and encourage the study of Irish culture in Canada. It also works to encourage young scholars and develop the next generation of Irish studies enthusiasts as well as support discussion of current issues in Irish studies and culture through conferences, publications, and online resources.
CAIS brings together all those who are committed to the promotion of Irish culture in Canada. Members of CAIS can be found in every province and territory of Canada. Members also come from Ireland, Northern Ireland, Britain, the United States, Europe, Asia, and Australasia.
Every year, we convene at one of Canada's universities for a celebration of Irish culture and heritage. At these conferences, we meet poets, scholars, musicians, actors, novelists--all in a spirit of inquiry and conviviality.
CANADIAN JOURNAL OF IRISH STUDIES
Revue canadienne d’études irlandaises
The Canadian Journal of Irish Studies/ Revue canadienne d’études irlandaises (CJIS/RCÉI) is the official scholarly publication of the Canadian Association for Irish Studies. Founded in 1974, it is currently housed at the School of Irish Studies at Concordia University, Montreal.
As the journal of record for Irish Studies in Canada, as well as for cutting-edge Irish studies internationally, the CJIS/RCÉI publishes articles, reviews, and other forms of text-based, visual and material expression ranging from poetry and interviews, to drawings and photography, to menus, maps, and research-creation works. Each issue of the journal can itself be considered as a designed work, specific to the contents and theme of that collection.
CJIS/RCÉI features transdisciplinary engagement with key issues of interest to Irish Studies researchers. Its contributors, both Canadian and international, employ a range of critical and methodological perspectives to promote an understanding and appreciation of Irish culture and everyday life, past and present, in the broadest terms.
