Going Romance 2019 (including a special session on gender) is hosted by the Leiden University Center for Linguistics (LUCL) and will take place at the Leiden University Library on November 28-29, 2019.
The invited speakers are Heather Burnett (CNRS – UMR 7110, Université Paris Diderot-Paris 7), João Costa (Universidade Nova de Lisboa) and Caterina Donati (CNRS – UMR 7110, Université Paris Diderot-Paris 7).
Main session, November 28-29
The scope of the conference series lies at the intersection of linguistic theory with data from the Romance languages. Beyond this general tenet, there are no specific requirements as to the topic, the subdiscipline, the approach or the methodology, as long as it is clear how the Romance data contribute to linguistic theories of human language (http://going-romance.wp.hum.uu.nl).
Special session ‘Gender in Romance’, November 29, 14.00-17.30h.
