I have been catching up on a show called Counterpart on cable TV (as of March 2019) with my daughter. Here is the premise, as summarized on Wikipedia: “Howard Silk has been working for a United Nations agency based in Berlin for thirty years; however, his rank is too low for him to be told what his work really involves. In fact, the agency oversees a crossing point to a parallel Earth (the "Prime world"), a copy of Silk's world. This crossing point was opened or created by East German scientists in 1987 and these two versions of Earth have been diverging ever since.”

Students Supervised by Richard Kayne (1969-2019)

I tried to find a list of Richard Kayne's students, but couldn't find one. So I prepared this as a gift to him on his 75th birthday. The CUNY and NYU theses can be found on Proquest.
