We would like to draw your attention to our newly founded Irish Studies Centre here in Switzerland. “The Swiss Centre of Irish Studies @ the Zurich James Joyce Foundation” (SCIS-ZJJF) was established on May 1, 2019, as a collaboration between the Zurich James Joyce Foundation and the University of Zurich, English Department.
The aims of this network for Swiss scholars working on and/or interested in Irish Studies are to:
• reflect and strengthen the unique role of the Zurich James Joyce Foundation as a cultural landmark and place of research of international importance;
• increase the visibility of Irish Studies at Swiss universities and beyond;
• promote interdisciplinary collaborations within Switzerland, between individual scholars as well as with partner institutions (e.g. the world-renowned Stiftsbibliothek in St. Gallen);
• facilitate scholarly exchange with members of other Irish Studies Associations in Europe, as well as with academics working across the globe.
You can find more information about the centre and about the members of our network on our website: https://www.es.uzh.ch/en/scis-
