A warm welcome to IAAS.ie, the website of the Irish Association for American Studies, where you will find all you need to know about American Studies in Ireland. The IAAS is an all-island organisation that promotes the culture as well as the study of the United States in Ireland.

Through a range of bursary schemes, we help fund the work of postgraduate and upcoming scholars in the diverse fields of American Studies. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the United States and the Americas, and your nominal annual subscription directly supports new work in the field.

Whether your interest is history, film, literature, music, art or politics we hope you find what you are looking for on this site. If not, tell us about it, and we will include it next time.
