February 2, 2009: We are delighted to announce that our keynote speaker will be Bruce Hayes from UCLA.
January 30, 2009: Our department's very own Molly Diesing and Sally McConnell-Ginet have signed on to present their ongoing tongue-in-cheek research into the pragmatics of Harry Potter spells. Prof. Diesing first gave a presentation on this work at the conference in honor of Prof. McConnell-Ginet's retirement in 2007, and they have both been developing the research since. Their presentation should be quite a treat!
