Celtic Studies Association of North America


The Celtic Studies Association of North America (CSANA) embraces all aspects of Celtic Studies and provides the kind of forum that is unavailable in any discipline- or area-based organization. Our members are interested in the languages, literature, history, folklore, music, art and archaeology of ancient, medieval and modern Celtic cultures.

We have members interested in Wales, Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, Cornwall and the continental Celts–and often in several of these. Many of us are concerned not only with Celtic cultures in themselves, but also with their interactions with other people and their representation to the rest of the world. With over two hundred members in the United States, Canada, Ireland, Great Britain, Europe, Australia and Japan, CSANA offers unparalleled opportunities for discussion of any and every topic in Celtic Studies. Although most of our meetings have been held in university settings, CSANA membership is open to anyone with a serious interest in Celtic Studies.
