Advance Cultural Studies Institute of Sweden - ACSIS

 

 

The Advanced Cultural Studies Institute of Sweden (ACSIS) is a national centre for interdisciplinary cultural research, affiliated with Linköping University’s Campus Norrköping.

Our ultimate goal is to strengthen the research field of cultural studies by serving as a bridge-builder between institutions, subjects and perspectives. ACSIS is a coordinating and dynamic resource for Swedish cultural researchers, acting as a link to the transnational field of cultural studies. During 2014 ACSIS will largely focus on the public interfaces of cultural research.
