Welcome to the home page of the Irish Association for Asian Studies (IAAS) – An Cumann Éireannach um an Léann Áiseach

The aim of IAAS is to promote Asian Studies in Ireland, and to advance education through the critical and analytical study of Asia and Asia-related topics by providing a forum for scholarly activity. It also seeks to foster a variety of academic activities, such as conferences, seminars, workshops and publications, and to promote the teaching of Asian languages in Irish schools and universities.

It also provides a space to bring together scholars who engage with all aspects of academic research on Asia from pre-modern times until the present day.

On behalf of IAAS, I would like to wish you and your families health during this period of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Le gach dea-mhéin,

Dr. Kevin Cawley – President of IAAS

Senior Lecturer in Korean Studies, Department of Asian Studies, University College Cork.
