An Italian’s home is his castle

Posted on January 14, 2014 by

At the end of 2013, LEL was sorry to say goodbye to Silvio Cruschina. Silvio has moved to Austria, to take up a new role in the Institute for Romance Studies (Institut für Romanistik) at the University of Vienna, on a 6-year contract. He’ll be teaching two courses a semester as well as researching there, working with Prof. Eva-Maria Remberger.

Silvio’s research continues to focus on Romance syntax and its interfaces, with a particular focus on Italian dialects, from a generative perspective – you can read more at his new website. Manchester is extremely sorry to lose him, as his departure has caused the average height of the city’s syntacticians to sink dramatically. Perhaps even more importantly, Silvio is a great researcher, a wonderful colleague and a friendly face, and we wish him all the best for the future!
