Call for papers

We are pleased to announce that the second meeting of Sensus, a workshop on the formal semantics and pragmatics of Romance languages, will take place virtually (and also possibly in person) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, on October 1-2 2021.

Our intention with this workshop is to bring together scholars in the growing community dedicated to the study of the construction of meaning within Romance languages. We hope this will become a regular venue for researchers with common interests in Romance semantics and pragmatics.

We invite presentations of original research involving a broad range of topics and methodologies in formal semantics and pragmatics of Romance. We aim to bring together researchers working from different perspectives including purely theoretical research on formal semantics/pragmatics and their interfaces with other domains, experimental methodologies, fieldwork, the study of variation and computational approaches.

We are also exploring the possibility of a proceedings volume.

Invited speakers

Ivano Caponigro (University of California, San Diego)
Gennaro Chierchia (Harvard University)
Jenny Doetjes (Universiteit Leiden)
