I'm very excited that we are coming up to a Festschrift for my PhD mentor, Art Wingfield. ArtWingfieldFest is going to be held at Brandeis University on July 22, 2014. Art has spent nearly five decades mentoring students, engaging colleagues, and conducting scientific research at an extremely high level. Most of this time has been at Brandeis, where he came in 1968. I am so pleased that we are able to put together an event to honor him for these contributions and to say thank you to someone who is, as a rule, far too humble.
The theme is Age, Hearing, and Speech Comprehension, reflecting Art's research interests over the years. Our speakers include former lab members and other noted researchers in the field: Mark Eckert, Murray Grossman, Mike Kahana, Stefanie Kuchinsky, Kathy Pichora-Fuller, Robert Remez, Bruce Schneider, Liz Stine-Morrow, and Cai Wingfield (who worked at the CBU as a research assistant).
It should be a fantastic day! I will post a follow up when we get some pictures. Please feel free to check out the website: www.artwingfieldfest.com.
