Welcome to ISAANZ

The Irish Studies Association of Australia and New Zealand encourages and supports the study of Ireland and of the Irish Diaspora in Australia, New Zealand and internationally by facilitating the exchange of information and ideas among its members. Information is circulated through regular newsletters to members and through ISAANZ conferences.

The Australasian Journal of Irish Studies is the flagship journal of ISAANZ. The current issue (Volume 19) is now available.


Due to an extended outage that affected our primary website, a backup site was created with essential online services (e.g. membership and AJIS orders) but limited news, announcements and general content.

We’ve now replaced our primary site with this new and faster design, and will be adding more content over the coming weeks. If you can’t find the information you’re looking for here, or have suggestions to improve the site please email us at isaanzlr(at)gmail.com

We apologise for any inconvenience the site outage may have caused.
