Calendar Event: August 19, 2005 - August 20, 2005

Cui dono lepidum novum libellum?
Dedicating Latin Works and Motets in the Sixteenth Century: Theory and

Interdisciplinary conference
19-20 August 2005, Academia Belgica (Rome, Italy)

Organised by the Departments of Musicology, Classical Studies and
Neo-Latin Studies, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium)

Call for papers

Due to the more widespread dissemination of the printed book in the
sixteenth century, the traditional act of dedicating a publication grew in
significance and took on a new meaning. As this dedication was considered
an almost indispensable feature of a publication, it is obligatory study
material for every researcher examining the presentation and impact of a
literary or musical work published in this period.

Paratexts such as the dedication letter and laudatory poetry play an
essential role in the presentation of the publication. Situated within the
triad formed by the author, his work and its public, they bridge the gap
between the real world and the world enclosed in the book. Furthermore,
these texts frequently offer substantial biographical information on the
people involved (author/composer, dedicatee, printer, and a possible
fourth person who contributed liminary material). In addition to the
dedication of complete editions, the study of dedicated poetry and music
should also comprise individual pieces with a personal inscription or (for
music) containing a newly-written text for a certain person.

This conference wishes to focus upon Latin dedications and dedicated Latin
motets (both individual compositions and motet books) in the sixteenth

We welcome papers dealing with questions such as:

· what information do dedications give us?
· how do the liminary material and the body of the work relate to each
· how are the traditional elements and phrasings of a dedication dealt
· does a different (literary or musical) genre prompt a different kind of dedication?
· what are the parallels and differences between the dedication of music
and of Latin texts?
· what is the meaning of a dedication within the printed book?
· how does the act of dedicating both music and/or texts function within the society?

Preference will go to papers concentrating on the second half of the
sixteenth century, and to papers reconciling the literary and
musicological perspectives presented in the conference theme. A session on
the evolution of the content and form of dedications throughout the
centuries will be organised to provide a wider context. More general
studies about dedicating and dedications are welcomed as well as case
studies focusing on individual compositions, motet books and literary

Proposals for twenty minute papers in the form of an abstract not
exceeding 300 words should be sent by e-mail to Nele Gabriels
(nele.gabriels@arts.kuleuven.ac.be) or Demmy Verbeke
(demmy.verbeke@arts.kuleuven.ac.be). The deadline for submissions is 15

exceptions can be made for French, German and Italian.
