The Society for Emblem Studies


Sir William Stirling Maxwell Fellowship

The Fellowship was founded in 1987 by the University of Glasgow in memory of Sir William Stirling Maxwell, the originator of the renowned collection of Emblem and Fête Books which bears his name and which his son, Sir John Stirling Maxwell, bequeathed to the University in 1958. It is awarded from time to time to suitably qualified researchers engaged on emblem or image studies and is intended to encourage scholarly interest in the Collection.
