Adam Baker will present “Discourse coherence and VP ellipsis with split antecedents” at the 2007 Amsterdam Colloquium, one of the most prestigious conferences in semantics. Well done, Adam!
Chris Kennedy will be an expert panelist in a post-performance panel discussion of two short plays, written by Don DeLillo and Tanya Saracho, and staged as part of this year’s Chicago Humanities Festival.
