Recently, Katahrina Felka was awarded the Wolfgang-Stegmüller Preis for her PhD thesis “Talking About Numbers” that Katharina wrote in course of the Nominalizations-project. We are of course very proud of her!
We are happy to announce our upcoming workshop on Nominalizations. The workshop will take place in room 121 of the main building of the Universität Hamburg, Edmund-Siemers-Allee 1 (west wing) on April 25-26.
