Welcome to AASSC, the Canadian interdisciplinary association for research on Scandinavian 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.

In 2014 we are celebrating our thirty-second anniversary, and our active members currently live across Canada, the United States, Scandinavia and the Nordic region. We welcome all new members, and we are focusing our energies on attracting graduate students and younger scholars who have an interest in Scandinavia.

I encourage you to explore our website and to join our Facebook page if you are interested. If you have any news items please submit them to the AASSC webmaster at aasscnewsletter@gmail.com.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments about AASSC membership or activities iurberg@augustana.ca I look forward to hearing from you!

Yours sincerely,

Ingrid Urberg, President AASSC
