Abstract: In previous work it had been shown that the remarkable homogeneous space $ M = \operatorname{Diff}({S^1})/{\text{PSL}}(2,\mathbb{R})$ sits as a complex analytic and Kähler submanifold of the Universal Teichmüller Space. There is a natural immersion $ \prod $ of M into the infinite-dimensional version (due to Segal) of the Siegel space of period matrices. That map $ \prod $ is proved to be injective, equivariant, holomorphic, and Kähler-isometric (with respect to the canonical metrics). Regarding a period mapping as a map describing the variation of complex structure, we explain why $ \prod $ is an infinite-dimensional period mapping.
