Kenshi to professorship at Dokkyo University
Congratulations to 2014 alumnus Kenshi Funakoshi, who in 2017 joins Dokkyo as Lecturer of Linguistics, equivalent to Assistant Professor. At Maryland Kenshi wrote a dissertation titled "Syntactic head movement and its consequences", under Howard's supervision. His new university is in Sōka, just 30km from Tokyo. Founded in 1881 by a Japanese expert on Kant, the university takes its name from an abbreviation of Doitsu-gaku Kyōkai [獨逸學協會], which means German-studies Society.
