The Jacqueline Brown Fund
In honor of Jacqueline Brown’s many years of distinguished service to the Medieval Academy, President Emerita Caroline Bynum has made a generous contribution with the hope that it would challenge others who have come to know Dr. Brown over the years to honor her through similar expressions of generosity. A substantial list of distinguished MAA members, former and current members of the editorial boards of Speculum, executive directors, and other friends have contributed over $20,000 to this fund.

These donations have now established a fund to help offset the costs of obtaining images and image rights for articles that have been accepted for publication in Speculum and that make use of visual resources not ordinarily available from the author’s own archives or under Fair Use, free Commons agreements, or from institutional archives and image repositories. Funds will be applied at the discretion of the Executive Director and Editor of Speculum, most especially for scholars whose institutions do not provide funding to subvent the publication of visual resources, with no individual subvention to exceed $500.

For those authors whose articles have been accepted by Speculum for forthcoming publication and who wish to request a subvention under the Jacqueline Brown Fund, please write to the Executive Director/Editor of Speculum, indicating the images to be used and hosting institution of the art work for which you will need to pay for images or image rights. Please also include a statement of your attempt to obtain these under the stipulations set forth in the paragraph above. Funding will be made available as quickly as possible in all applicable cases in order to expedite publication of the article in Speculum in a timely manner.
