Invited Speakers

PETER JURGEC is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Toronto. He completed his PhD at the University of Tromsø, Norway, in 2011. He has worked extensively on the phonetics and phonology of Slovenian and its dialects. His other research interests include feature theory, Harmonic Serialism, locality, consonant harmony, loanwords, and exceptionality in phonology. His papers appeared in Linguistic Inquiry, Phonology, Glossa, and Natural Language & Linguistic Theory. He also developed PhonoApps (http://phonoapps.com), a collection of tools for teaching and learning phonology.

ASYA PERELTSVAIG received a Ph.D. in Linguistics from McGill University and has since taught linguistics at Yale, Cornell, Stanford and several other universities around the world. She is a specialist in Slavic syntax, and her main research focus is on the syntax and semantics of noun phrases in Russian and how they fit into the larger structure of a clause in terms of word order, case marking and binding. Her broader interests include linguistic typology and historical linguistics.   

LJILJANA PROGOVAC  is Professor of Linguistics at Wayne State University. Her research interests include syntax, Slavic syntax, and the evolution of syntax. These interests are reflected in the four books that she authored: Positive and Negative Polarity (CUP, 1994); A Syntax of Serbian (Slavica, 2005); Evolutionary Syntax (OUP, 2015), and A Critical Introduction to Language Evolution (Springer Expert Briefs, 2019). She has published 24 journal articles, of which two recent ones (2018 a,b) report on fMRI experiments testing some predictions of her proposal on language evolution.
