The JENom workshops originate in France, which explains its French acronym (Journées d’Études sur les Nominalisations). The first five editions were held in Nancy, Lille, Paris 8, Stuttgart and Barcellona. This year’s JENom will be organized by the University of Verona and the Alma Mater Studiorum – University of Bologna, and will be held in Verona on June 30-July 1, 2015.
JENom traditionally aims at bringing together researchers who are concerned with the morphology, syntax and semantics of nominalizations of eventive verbs. However, recent editions significantly broadened the focus of the workshop so as to include a larger variety of related topics and constructs. JENom6 will continue along these lines.
