Thomas A. Wasow Visiting Scholars in Symbolic Systems

Supported by an endowment grant from anonymous donors, Wasow Scholars are chosen for their outstanding research contributions in areas of current interest across two or more departments represented within the Symbolic Systems Program. Visits by Wasow Scholars to Stanford may last for one or more weeks, and include a mix of public talks and informal discussion with students and faculty.
