The SURPRISE workshop in honor of David Pesetsky’s 60th birthday, February 11, 2017.
The goal of the workshop is to celebrate David’s contributions to the field of linguistics, focusing in particular on his far-reaching impact through teaching and advising. To that end, we will be presenting David with a book, to which 60 of his former and current advisees have submitted a paper, at a reception the end of a one-day workshop. The workshop will feature two discussion panels on areas related to David’s research, which are designed to allow for maximal audience participation. Everyone is welcome to attend any and all parts of the event! In addition to the panels, there will be two poster sessions.
Organizers: Claire Halpert, Sabine Iatridou, Hadas Kotek, Coppe van Urk with the generous support of the MIT Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. For questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
