comment Quotation marks in names of events
I do not know what the 'official' rule is for this, but the option with quotation marks is certainly easier to read and understand.

comment Nominalizations and the missing “the”
I would actually say that the sentence makes more sense as "ease the adoption of new technology" (like FumbleFingers), because "adoption of new technology" allows for more interpretations of the phrase "new technology." "A new technology" is singular, whereas "new technology" could be plural. Really, most "new technologies" are composites of other technologies, so this makes a lot more sense to me.

Sorry! Where I am from engineers do, in general, make much more money.

comment “woman” or “women” as a stand-in for the adjective “female”?
Perhaps, if the author is introducing the context of the paper, the term 'woman' would be appropriate to focus the audience towards the gender of the poet. If Emily's gender is relevant to the theme of the paper, this makes sense.
