This is the Website for the journal Scandinavian-Canadian Studies / Études scandinaves au Canada. Our aim is to provide Web-based access to the contents of the print journal in a range of different formats, including PDF, HTML, XML (TEI P5), and plain text (UTF-8), starting with volume 15. In order to provide timely discussions of current research, book reviews are available online on an ongoing basis. Articles and review articles will be available online only after the volume has been printed. Print copies of recent volumes are available from the University of Victoria Bookstore.

Scandinavian-Canadian Studies is a journal published by the AASSC (Association for the Advancement of Scandinavian Studies in 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, not to mention social and cultural values. Articles deal with a wide range of subjects: translation studies, mermaids, multiculturalism, the films of Bergman, Ibsen and other writers, Scandinavian immigration to Canada, Icelandic sagas, and so on. The first volume was published in 1983.
