The 27th Colloquium on Generative Grammar [27CGG] was organized at the Universidad de Alcalá [UAH] by MEAT colleagues and friends Manuel Leonetti, Silvia Gumiel-Molina, Norberto Moreno-Quibén and Isabel Pérez-Jiménez. Right before the Business Meeting, Olga Fernández-Soriano, Isabel Pérez-Jiménez and Elena Castroviejo had the joy of presenting the book they have co-edited (with the support of MEAT and Ikerbasque), entitled Boundaries, phases and interfaces. Case studies in honor of Violeta Demonte and published by the John Benjamin’s series Linguistik Aktuell / Linguistics Today. We were very happy and proud to share some memories of the 24th CGG, unveil the table of contents of the book and thank all its contributors, including authors and reviewers. It was especially nice to be able to give a copy of the book to Violeta and celebrate this event surrounded by the theoretical linguistics community which gathered in Alcalá.
By the way, it was announced that the 28th CGG will be hosted by the Universitat Rovira i Virgili and organized by another MEAT friend, Isabel Oltra-Massuet!
