On April 21 and 22, the University of Wisconsin, Madison hosted a workshop on various linguistic approaches to the multifunctional se/si clitics found across most of the Romance languages. Several University of Toronto linguists gave presentations:
Cristina Cuervo (faculty):
"Disappearing se in predicates embedded under causative light verbs."
Kaz Bamba (Ph.D.):
"On the relation between null subjects and impersonal se."
Alumna Monica Irimia (Ph.D. 2011, now at the University of York) and colleague Virginia Hill (University of New Brunswick, Saint John)
"Unergative frames for non-argument se verbs: A case study."
