Societas Linguistica Europaea [SLE] Annual Meeting 2015: Themed session on Case and agreement 

András Bárány, Michelle Sheehan, and Jenneke van der Wal organised a themed session on the interaction of Case and agreement at the 48th Annual Meeting of the Societas Linguistica Europaea in Leiden, in September 2015.

We had a great programme covering languages from all over the world, and phenomena like inverse agreement, global case splits, differential object (and subject) marking, tripartite systems, split-ergativity, and more. Here you can find handouts and slides of some of the talks.
