Welcome to AASSC, the Canadian interdisciplinary association for research on Scandinavian and Nordic culture spanning all aspects of social studies and the humanities: demography, sociology, art, literature, language, theatre and film, music, history, geography, folklore, religion, geography, Norse sagas, archaeology and more.

We welcome all new members, and we are focusing our energies on attracting graduate students and younger scholars from North America – as well as Europe and around the Globe – who have an interest in the Nordic Region.

I encourage you to explore our website and to join our Facebook page (AASSC) where you can get the recent news and where the call for papers for our annual AASSC conference will be posted. The conference normally takes place in late May/early June in conjunction with the annual Canadian Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Next year it will be in Regina, SK. Please remember that you have to be a member of AASSC in order to attend the conference – but that is an easy task when using our PayPal account here on the website. – Natalie Van Deusen, President

If you have any news items for the website please submit them to the AASSC Webmaster: aasscnewsletter@gmail.com and/or become a member of the AASSC Facebook group where you can also post news and questions.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments about AASSC membership or activities vandeuse@ualberta.ca
