About the Irish Society for the Study of Children’s Literature

The purpose of the Irish Society for the Study of Children’s Literature is to promote academic research into children’s literature. Membership is open to scholars from Ireland and other countries, and to researchers at all career stages, including postgraduate students. We welcome members from a wide range of disciplines, including literature, history, education, psychology, sociology, women’s studies, and fine arts. We seek to foster a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of children’s literature.  Our committee is elected every two years and you can read our constitution here
