Experimental semantics from Maryland featured at new conference, with work by Anouk, Tyler, Jad and Dan, plus several faculty and alums

Florian Schwarz and Anna Papafragou at UPenn have a organized a new conference on experimental work directed at questions of semantics and pragmatics: Experiments in Linguistic Meaning. Drawing in part from the community that flourishes at MACSIM, the very first ELM, online September 16-18, has a rich and impressive program, including work by Anouk DieuleveutTyler Knowlton, and Dan Goodhue, with faculty collaborators Valentine Hacquard, Ailis Cournane (NYU), Jeff Lidz, Alexander Williams, Paul Pietroski (UMD, Rutgers) and Justin Halberda (Hopkins), as well as work by BA alum Morgan Moyer, postbac RA alums Anissa Zaitsu and Jad Wehbe, PhD alum Alexis Wellwood, and postdoctoral alums Ming Xiang and Martin Hackl; and also by a crew including Terrapin philosopher Paolo Santorio. This is sure to be a fruitful venue for future work from UMD in semantics and psycholinguistics.
