Scandinavian-Canadian Studies/Études Scandinaves au Canada is a journal published by the AASSC (Association for the Advancement of Scandinavian Studies in Canada/L’Association pour L’Avancement des études Scandinaves au Canada). It expresses in concrete—and more recently virtual—form the Association’s conviction that there is much to be learned from peoples of Scandinavia, not least by Canadians, who share a comparable geopolitical situation, as well as social and cultural histories and values. Articles and reviews, which may be published in either English or French, deal with a wide range of subjects: translation, indigenous studies, postcolonialism, politics, film, contemporary literature, Scandinavian immigration to Canada, Icelandic sagas, and so on. The first volume was published in 1983.
