Formal Approaches to Slavic Linguistics (FASL 20) a success!

The department was proud to host the 20th meeting of Formal Approaches to Slavic Linguistics (FASL).  The conference, which ran from May 13-15, was a resounding success, drawing linguists from 13 countries and 3 continents to MIT.  The presentations included invited talks by four of MIT’s own: professors Donca Steriade and Morris Halle (who was introduced by Noam Chomsky), visiting professor Sergei Tatevosov from Moscow State University, and recent alum Ivona Ku?erová (now at McMaster University in London, Ontario).   Thanks to all presenters, attendees, and organizers for making FASL 20 such a success!
