The purpose of the Irish Society for the Study of Children’s Literature is to promote academic research into children’s literature. Its membership is open to scholars both from Ireland and other countries. We welcome members from a wide range of disciplines, including literature, history, education, psychology, sociology, women’s studies, and fine arts. In doing so we seek to foster a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of children’s literature.
Within the website you will find links to cognate societies, information about forthcoming events relevant to our disciplines and details on how to join the Society. The new format will allow us to build the site as the society develops, so visit us during the coming year as we add our discussion board, reviews section and update the details for upcoming conferences and events.
