Universiteit van Amsterdam

Honorary doctorate awarded to Barbara Partee

On January 8th, 2018, during UvA's Dies Natalis celebration, the University of Amsterdam has awarded an honorary doctorate to Prof. Barbara Partee for her groundbreaking contributions to formal semantics and to the development of the research community in this interdisciplinary field that brings linguistics, philosophers and logicians together. From the late 1960s and early 1970s onwards, her work has inspired many researchers in this field worldwide, in the Netherlands and at the ILLC in Amsterdam. The ILLC-community is very proud that Prof. Barbara Partee received this honorary doctorate at the University of Amsterdam. We consider her to be
our role model for the interdisciplinary research we conduct in this area and we invite everyone to learn more about her work and passion for formal semantics.
