International Marcus Meibom Symposium: Stockholm, 12–13 January 2010

Abstract [en]

Throughout his long life span Marcus Meibom (c.1630–c.1710) was active as philologist, historian, librarian, music theorist and mathematician, but is today chiefly remembered for his writings concerning ancient Greek sources and artefacts. Meibom’s controversial personality caused great academic and personal conflicts, but appears also to have been an important factor in his scholarly preferences, his methods and the results therefrom. Through his residence at institutions throughout Europe (in present Sweden, Denmark, Holland and England) he has left his mark in many disciplines, which in turn enable scholars from a diversity of branches in the humanities to convene at this symposium, marking the tercentennial commemoration of Meibom’s death. Alongside the interdisciplinary exchange between specialised scholars that is the main purpose of the symposium, it is also hoped that the programme will attract interest from a broader audience with interest in the history of learning and European scholarly culture. The aim is to publish the conference proceedings in order to contribute to a deeper understanding of Meibom and to the particular research topics and contexts to which he contributed. The symposium will be held at the Swedish Royal Library in Stockholm (thus with an indirect connection to Meibom’s service in the Swedish court library). Applications are invited for short papers of 10-15 minutes duration, but the main focus of the conference will be panel discussions concerning different aspects of Meibom, his life, works and contexts. Proposals for papers and round-table sessions should be presented in the form of an abstract of c:a 250 words. Deadline for submitting proposals, which should be addressed to Mattias Lundberg (mattias.lundberg@muslib.se) is 1 November 2009. A full programme and practical details of the symposium will be communicated to participants and made available on-line before November 15 2009. The symposium is arranged with financial support from Sven och Dagmar Saléns stiftelse. For further information, please contact the symposium organising committee: Dr. Mattias Lundberg (Rare Collections, Music Library of Sweden) mattias.lundberg@muslib.se Dr. Janis Kreslins (Research Department, National Library of Sweden) janis.kreslins@kb.se
