Professor Karen Zagona retires after 23 years at UW Linguistics 

This spring, we are also saying goodbye to a beloved faculty member. Professor Karen Zagona has been with us at UW Linguistics for 23 years, and served as an adjunct professor in Romance Languages and in Spanish for much of that time. Since 2000, Professor Zagona has supervised seven doctoral dissertations in syntax. She has written two books and edited three more, ranging in topic from Spanish syntax to the grammar of Romance languages. In her time here at the UW Linguistics department she has touched many lives, both as an intellectual and as a mentor. We wish her the happiest and most relaxing retirement, and thank her for all her amazing work for our department and for our field of study.
