Recontruction Workshop 2014

The Fifteenth Spring Workshop on Theory and Method in Linguistic Reconstruction was held in the Department March 14-16.  This long-running series of every-other-year workshops began in 1986, when Terry Kaufman and Sally Thomason were both at the University of Pittsburgh and organized the First Spring Workshop on Theory and Method in Linguistic Reconstruction.  Sally continued to organize the Workshops once she came to Ann Arbor. Many of the participants -- Eric Hamp, Lyle Campbell, Jim Matisoff, Martha Ratliff, Alice Harris, Marianne Mithun, Ives Goddard, and others -- have been coming from the very beginning, or nearly so.
