Glasgow signs scholarship agreement with Santander Universities

The University has signed a partnership agreement with Santander Universities which will provide scholarships for Iberian and Latin American students to study at Glasgow. 

Support was also pledged for the Stirling Maxwell Research Project, aided by a one-off donation from Santander Shareholders.  The project will research the context and significance of William Stirling’s Annals of the Artists of Spain (1847–48), the first scholarly history of Spanish art in English – and a landmark in the history of photography and in photography as a tool of art history.

The Annals Talbotypes project will involve international collaboration between Glasgow and our partners in the project: the National Media Museum, Bradford; the Prado Museum, Spain’s national gallery; and CEEH, a Spanish foundation in Madrid. The major outcome will be the publication of a facsimile and critical edition of the Annals Talbotypes – early forms of photographs.
