We have been remiss to delay a post on our many recent graduates and dissertation defenders for so long, but here now, for your viewing pleasure, is one congratulations megapost!
In May, PhD students Arunima Choudhury, Christina Hagedorn, Fang-Ying Hsieh, and Lucy Kyoungsook Kim attended the PhD Hooding Ceremony supported by several faculty and staff representatives from the department including Brandon Washington and professors Dani Byrd, Louis Goldstein, and Elsi Kaiser. Congratulations to these students on their hard-earned PhDs!
Already this semester, two students have defended dissertations:
Ellen O’Connor successfully defended her dissertation, “Comparative Illusions at the Syntax-semantics Interface”
Iris Ouyang successfully defended her dissertation, “Prosody and Informativity: a Cross-linguistic Investigation”
A hearty congrats to all of our recent grads and successful dissertation defenders!
