Description

The Society for Emblem Studies exists to foster the study of emblem books and related materials in literature and the visual arts, their origins and influence on other cultural forms, in all periods, countries and languages. Since the study of emblem books is a highly interdisciplinary field that encompasses literary studies, art history and iconography, religious practice and theology, political discourses, the history of mentalities, material culture, and social manners and mores, the Society aims to provide a channel of communication for students and scholars seeking collaborative assistance from specialists with expertise in different fields than their own.
