For January's Artifact of the Month, we bring you these mementos of the inaugural West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics (WCCFL 1), held at Stanford from January 22-24, 1982. A look at the program reveals that it included an all-star cast of presenters! Among them were current and former faculty members, including Joan Bresnan, Paul Kiparsky, Stanley Peters, and Ivan Sag.
And mark your calendars: Stanford will be hosting WCCFL 40 in 2022! We are brainstorming how to make this a truly special event — ideas welcome!
