The DJ Tiesto and Armin van Buuren of Hollands 1620s and 1630s. Songbooks and youth identity in the Dutch Golden Age


Conference ‘Identities, Intertextuality and Performance in Song Culture (c. 1500 – c. 1800)’ was held in Amsterdam on October 17-19, 2012. This small conference (i.e. some 20 participants) is preparing for a Collection of Essays, to be published in the peer-reviewed series Intersections, in May 2013 (Brill Publishers, Leiden). The volume will celebrate the completion of a huge database, ‘Dutch Songs On Line’ (DSOL), which aims at collecting all Dutch song texts (full text) between c. 1500-1900. DSOL is a continuation and expansion of the already existing Dutch Song Database (Nederlandse Liederenbank). This project is a cooperation of Utrecht University(focus area Cultures and Identities), the Meertens Institute in Amsterdam and theDigital Library for Dutch Letters (DBNL) in Leiden and is sponsored by NWO(Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research).
