Meeting Description:

Much recent work in linguistics, philosophy of language, cognitive psychology
and computer science focuses on questions about anaphora and discourse. However,
some major questions about the structure of discourse and its interaction with
anaphors remain unanswered. To this end, the majority of the Discourse
Constraints on Anaphora Conference will consist of roundtable discussions of the
following four questions:

- What is the structure of discourse?
- How does the structure of discourse constrain the referents of pronouns?
- What do discourse constraints on anaphora teach us about reference?
- What do discourse constraints on anaphora teach us about the structure of the

The resulting conversations, between scholars with a diverse range of
approaches, will serve as snapshots of current thought on anaphora and
discourse. We hope that they will also mark the next step towards answering
these questions. Roundtable participants include Barbara Abbott, Alan Garnham,
Hans Kamp, Craige Roberts, Hannah Rohde, Jason Stanley, and Matthew Stone.
