LAW JOINS LINGUISTICS FACULTY

Jess H.-K. Law, doctoral student in Linguistics at Rutgers University, will be joining the Department of Linguistics at UCSC as Assistant Professor in the coming academic year! Jess works in theoretical and experimental linguistics, with a focus on semantics and pragmatics. Specifically, she enjoys puzzling over distributivity, plurality, dynamic semantics, speech acts, bare noun phrases. She writes,

There is no better home for my research and teaching than Linguistics at UC Santa Cruz, and there is no better home for my family than the beautiful city of Santa Cruz. I eagerly look forward to working alongside all the brilliant linguists at the department to push the boundary of linguistics.

Congratulations, Jess!

FARKAS NAMED KELLEY VISITING PROFESSOR

Donka Farkas will spend the 2019-2020 academic year as the Kelley Visiting Professor for Distinguished Teaching at Princeton University. Donka writes:

I will teach two courses during the year, one in semantics, and one in pragmatics.  I am looking forward to joining colleagues in the Linguistics Program there, as well as in the Philosophy department.  After a year on the East Coast I will be, I am sure, eager to return home to Santa Cruz.
Congratulations, Donka!
