Partee can be considered very much  a Montagovian at heart ; the closest counterpart within the generative semantic deviancy would be the late Jim McCawley.

A more personal reflection on her own career can be found at https://people.umass.edu/partee/docs/BHP_Essay_Feb05.pdf

McCawley's text "Everything linguists always wanted to know about logic... but were ashamed to ask" is still good reading,   http://www.amazon.com/Everything-Linguists-Always-Wanted-Ashamed/dp/0226556115

A possible framework for integrating Cog Ling into a logical formalism might be Sign Based Construction Grammar, which attempts to unify Berkeley style construction grammar with Stanford style HPSG. See eg.
