Howard in Guangzhou (but not Hong Kong)

November 23-29, Howard Lasnik gives three talks in Guangzhou. The first is a keynote address at the International Symposium on Interfaces in Generative Linguistics, titled “The syntax-semantics interface: Some recurrent themes." Howard then presents “A Reconsideration of Exceptional Case-Marking” at South China National University, November 25, followed by “Reflections on Ellipsis and Identity” at Guangdong University of Foreign Studies the next day. Until recently Howard had also been scheduled to head down-river to the Chinese University of Hong Kong, to discuss “Reflections on Ellipsis and Identity” on November 29. But this was cancelled after the university was shut down due to protests. 一路平安, Howard!
