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, interviews, think pieces and reviews – by well-established academics as well as by junior scholars based in different parts of the world (Brazil, Britain, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Spain, Sweden, 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 9 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 in charge of the sections – Constanza del Río, Patricia Lynch, Tony Tracy and Roddy Flynn – for their diligence soliciting reviews of the annual crop of Irish Studies publications in Spain, of Irish-related bibliography generated round the world and of Irish film and television, and for complementing the specialists’ reports with their own appraisal and insightful comments on the year’s offerings.
My deepest gratitude also to the members of the Editorial Board for supplying valuable feedback and advice to authors.
