The Celtic Studies Association of North America (CSANA) embraces all aspects of Celtic Studies and provides a forum that is unavailable in a discipline- or area-based organization. Our members are interested in the languages, literature, history, folklore, music, art and archaeology of ancient, medieval, and modern Celtic cultures.
We have members interested in Wales, Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, Cornwall, the Isle of Man, and the continental Celts. Many of us are concerned not only with Celtic cultures in themselves, but also with their interactions with other people and their representation to the rest of the world. With over two hundred members in the United States, Canada, Ireland, Great Britain, Europe, Australia and Japan, CSANA offers unparalleled opportunities for discussion of any and all topics in Celtic Studies. Although most of our meetings are held in university settings, CSANA membership is open to anyone with a serious interest in Celtic Studies.
Founded in 1976, CSANA is incorporated in the District of Columbia as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. We sponsor a three-day conference each spring. We also sponsor sessions each year at the International Congress of Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and maintain close ties to the Celtic Discussion Group of the Modern Language Association, the University of California Celtic Colloquium, the Harvard Celtic Colloquium, and the American Conference for Irish Studies, as well as to the International Congress of Celtic Studies.
Benefits of membership include the CSANA Newsletter, the CSANA Bibliography, reduced prices on the CSANA Yearbook, Irish Texts Society publications, and access to our online discussion group, CSANA-L, which provides a forum for the exchange of information, queries, and research.
The newest issue of the CSANA Yearbook (vols 11-12) was recently published by Colgate University Press and can be ordered directly from http://colgatebookstore.com/. Click on “Books” and then search for CSANA. Click here for more information.
