LINGUISTICS

LIN4: The Syntax-Semantics Interface
Fall 2016: Workshop,Dimensions of D, University of Rochester
Linguists have been arguing about what exactly a determiner is (e.g., English ‘the’, ‘a’) and what it does in the nominal domain ever since the groundbreaking work by Abney (1987). However, the search for a definitive list of indispensable functional categories for nominals has not yet yielded a definite result agreed upon by everyone. D is not an exception. The issue, as linguists from diverse theoretical schools have come to realize, is clouded by the fact that syntactic configurations and morphemes which are not obviously determiners can have functions/semantic impact which are comparable to those of determiners. In addition, if one takes into consideration languages without overt determiners, a further complication arises: is determination universal, even if it is not manifested overtly? Long tradition and current work notwithstanding, the dimensions of D still remain unclear. This workshop brings together researchers from different subfields of linguistics to address some of the following questions:
·       What does a typology of D look like if we set out to capture languages with and without overt D?
·       How do functional categories other than D interact with D?
·       When, if at all, can categories other than D take on the function of D?
·       How, if at all, can information structure phenomena induce D-like effects?

LIN6: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Discourse
November 12, 2016: Sixth Workshop in Linguistics and PhilosophySpeech Acts, Cornell University
This interdisciplinary workshop brings together philosophers, psychologists and linguists working on speech acts and communication. The topics include the psychological underpinnings of cooperative face-to-face conversation, the linguistic marking of core communicative functions across the worlds languages and discourses that reveal the oppressive and violent forces at play in some human interactions. The aim is to integrate insights from mathematical theories of discourse developed by philosophers and linguists with psychologists working on human interaction and other philosophers working on the role of language in social dynamics. The workshop features a day and a half of presentations of previously circulated papers, comments and discussion.

November 2016: Music Against Racism/Música Contra Racismo, Syracuse University
Together with two Dominican partner organizations (Institute of Caribbean Studiesand Alianza Dominicana), Syracuse University faculty member Sydney Hutchinson recently initiated the Music Against Racist Project (Música Contra Racismo) to use music as a tool for combatting racism and enhancing the human rights of disenfranchised populations in the Dominican Republic and among Dominican migrants. The project confronts the international problem of racism on a cultural level and has been motivated by the human rights crisis currently occurring in the Dominican Republic, in which tens of thousands of Haitian immigrants and Dominicans of Haitian descent are being denied citizenship and/or expelled from the country, while it also connects with the international Black Lives Matter movement. Its goals are to stimulate discussion of and reflection on racism as a problem in Dominican society and to use music as a way of motivating young Dominicans who might not otherwise be interested in politics to combat this problem in their daily lives. This event brings two of Hutchinson’s project partners to Syracuse University to speak about this and their own musical activist projects with faculty and students during a mini-seminar and participate in a roundtable discussion on music, racism, and activism for the general public at La Casita.

March 1, 2016: Lecture on Digital Humanities, Jentery Sayers (University of Victoria) Prototyping Absence, Remaking Old Media, Cornell University
When conducting archival research, historians of media and technology frequently encounter devices that no longer work or existed only as illustrations, fictions, or one-offs. Rather than studying such uncertainty at remove, this talk outlines ways to prototype absences in the historical record.
