Estudios Irlandeses

Welcome to Estudios Irlandeses, the scholarly journal of AEDEI, the Spanish Association for Irish Studies.

We are happy to launch the latest issue, which gathers a wide range of original work – research essays, an interview, a think piece and four sections of reviews – by well-established academics as well as by junior scholars based in different parts of the world (Argentina, Brazil, Britain, Canada, France, Ireland, Spain, Taiwan, and the United States). Our hearty thanks to all the contributors. And our invitation to people doing research in the broad discipline of Irish Studies to submit their work for the forthcoming issues.

In March 2005 the journal made an auspicious start with a special inaugural Issue 0 containing fifteen essays which set a high standard of scholarship. As Issue 10 sees the light, we feel that we’ve fulfilled our mandate to be an international forum for original research in the field of Irish Studies, and to make original and cutting-edge scholarship freely available to the broadest possible audience. The inclusion of Estudios Irlandeses in a large number of prestigious international directories and databases is a most welcome reward.

The fact that the journal comes out once a year gives us the opportunity of offering comprehensive reviews of the previous year’s output of Irish-related material in different areas. I am enormously grateful to the colleagues who over the years have been in charge of the sections – Tony Tracy, Patricia Lynch, Constanza del Río and Roddy Flynn –  for their diligence soliciting reviews of the annual crop of Irish film and television, of Irish-related bibliography generated round the world and Irish Studies publications in Spain, and for complementing the specialists’ reports with their own appraisal and insightful comments on the year’s offerings. It is also a privilege to have Ruth Barton as editor of the new section “Irish Film and Media Studies Publications”.

In this issue special recognition must go to Ailbhe Smyth for writing a compelling opinion piece on a matter of ongoing debate.

As always, my deepest gratitude to the members of the Editorial Board for supplying valuable feedback and advice to authors.
