Welcome.  PLEASE CLICK HERE to join the  livestream as an audience member (Thursday Nov 4th, 3-5pm) over Zoom Webinar.



Opening Remarks.   Elissa Newport

Lila’s “Relatives” and Admirers.  Thanks to everyone who signed up as a relative.  If you signed up you will be joining the zoom webinar using your own special panelist link, already provided to you (not the link above).  Participation will be modeled loosely after the Lila Gleitman Party, held every year at BUCLD, in which each of Lila’s academic ‘offspring’ would stand up and say who they were and how they were related to Lila. Relations included academic daughters, granddaughters, sons, grandsons, nephews, nieces, but also many other unexpected relations (e.g., cousins, uncles, the milkman, and one time, a complete stranger at the Chinese restaurant where we had the party).

Closing Remarks.  John Trueswell


ASL interpretation will be provided during the memorial. If you have other accessibility requests / questions, please email John Trueswell at trueswel@psych.upenn.edu.  Thank you!
