Com(parative) Syn(tax) Series

ComSyn is a series of lectures about (comparative) syntax.

ComSyn started as discussion group about Comparative Syntax at Leiden University Center for Linguistics (LUCL). Now, it is primarily a series of lectures about (comparative) syntax. Speakers from all over the world are very welcome to present their work in an informal setting. ComSyn is the perfect place to present work in progress, do a mock defense, do dry runs for a conference or simply present a syntactic problem one would like to share with other people. If you have any suggestions, please contact one of the organisers, Elisabeth Kerr and Maarten Boogaards.

*As covid restrictions are slowly but steadily lifting, we’re delighted to announce that the new ComSyn season will feature a blend of online and in-person talks — the latter with drinks afterwards! Talks will be on the same day as before, but in a new time slot: Thursdays, 16:15-17:30 Amsterdam/CE(S)T. The in-person talks will be held in Lipsius 207; please join our mailing list for links to the online talks.

The full program is as follows:

11 Nov — Halima Husic (Ruhr-Universität Bochum) — In person [Combined talk with LUSH]
25 Nov — Matthijs Westera (LUCL) — In person
9 Dec — Mike Diercks (Pomona College) — Online
