ACIS Logo Statement on Diversity

The American Conference for Irish Studies is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming intellectual space for all existing and future members of our community. The organization stands in solidarity with marginalized people and categorically condemns all speech and action that endorses racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, ableism, religious and cultural prejudice, or bigotry of any stripe. In terms of participation at our conferences, the topics highlighted therein, and in all other ACIS activities, the organization is steadfastly committed to promoting diversity and inclusivity with regard to race, class, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender expression and identity, sexual orientation, and physical abilities. The ACIS Executive Committee expects all members and participants in our events and forums to respect and adhere to those principles of diversity and inclusion.
