4th Linguistics Summer School in the Indian Mountains

10th - 30th June 2009

Web Site: http://www.fosssil.in/

Call Deadline: 15th December 2008

FOSSSIL announces the 4th LISSIM to take place in Kausani June 10-30, 2008, in
the lap of the gorgeous Kumaun Hills, India. Overlooking the highest peak on the
Indian side, Nanda Devi (7820m), and several other peaks including the famous,
Trishul (7120m), the Summer School venue is ideal for communal living and
learning, devoid of the usual distractions of a city, town or even a touristy
hill station.

The themes for the 4th LISSIM are as follows:

Topics in DP Syntax and Semantics
Topics in WH/ Relative Clause Syntax and Semantics
Complexity and Discourse

The teaching faculty will consist of the following established experts in formal
linguistics topics

David Adger, University of London, Queen Mary, UK
Tanmoy Bhattacharya, University of Delhi, India
Hagit Borer, University of Southern California, USA
Guglielmo Cinque, University of Venice, Italy
M.T. Hany Babu, University of Delhi, India
Aravind K. Joshi, University of Pennsylvania, USA
Ayesha Kidwai, Jawaharlal Nehru University, India
Guiseppe Longobardi, University of Trieste, Italy
Anoop Mahajan, University of California, Los Angeles, USA
Sundar Sarukkai, National Institute of Advanced Studies, India (unconfirmed)
Philippe Schlenker, Insitut Jean-Nicod, France (unconfirmed)

Given the popularity of the themes and the faculty, the admission to the School
is likely to be highly competitive. Since the number of student participants is
limited to 20, prospective participants are therefore requested to apply as soon
as possible.
Students from India are requested to apply for membership to FOSSSIL by writing
an email of intention to secretaryfosssil.in.

All prospective students for the School are requested to send an email to the
same address with the following information latest by 15th December, 2008:

The registration fee ($350 for students from outside India, Rs. 9500 for
students from India) will cover accommodation (double occupancy) and food for 20
days of the School.
