Had never actually been to Iceland (beyond the airport) but am here now for the 25th Scandinavian Conference of Linguistics in Reykjavík. Amazing in every way ... and the weather has been mostly better than in Madison. I can't believe I'd never been to Iceland before.
In September, there will be another chance for some readers of this blog to come to this amazing place, namely the 4th Annual Workshop on Immigrant Languages in the Americas. The deadline for abstracts is coming up (May 31st), but it's a reasonably low-key event and lots of cool stuff was presented at all three of the previous ones. It'll be in the building pictured below, which really does look like that.
Be there or be square.
