Meeting Description:

Going Romance is the European conference series that focuses on Romance languages from the perspective of current linguistic theorizing.

This year, for the first time, the conference is really going Romance and will be held in Nice, France. Organized by the Radboud University Nijmegen and the Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis, it will take place in the Maison du Séminaire, 3-5 December 2009.
