Seminar of Interest: Kaufmann & Shapiro, “Plurals”

Stefan Kaufmann (Linguistics) and Stewart Shapiro (Philosophy) will be co-teaching a seminar on “Plurals” this semester. A draft syllabus is attached to this message. It is very preliminary, but will at least give you a rough idea of the topics to be covered. You can register to take the seminar for credit under either of its numbers (LING 6410 or PHIL 5342). Auditing is also an option. Please direct any questions you might have to either of the instructors.

There will be no Meaning Group meeting on Friday, May 3. Instead, everyone is encouraged to check out the program of the Expression, Communication, and the Origins of Meaning (ECOM) Worskhop “Communication, Context, Conversatioun” this Friday and Saturday (see the attached flyer).
