Annemarie, Anouk, Mina & Sigwan at MACSIM

April 6 at NYU, the 8th Mid-Atlantic Colloquium for Studies in Meaning has a talk by Annemarie van Dooren and posters by Anouk Dieuleveut, Mina Hirzel and Sigwan Thivierge. This 8th MACSIM marks the end of the first 'cycle' of MACSIM, with each of its eight member universities now having hosted it once. Maryland hosted the Second MACSIM in 2012. So look forward to another MACSIM at UMD sometime within the next eight years!
