Thursday, November 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Hillcrest 103 (the Orchard Room)
Refreshments will be served
The It’s Not What You Think storytelling series explores the unexpected twists and turns that life takes—emphasizing that our lives rarely (if ever) progress as a linear series of met goals.
On Thursday, November 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Hillcrest 103 (the Orchard Room), Caitlin Myers, Associate Professor of Economics, will share her story of living through the grief of the sudden loss of her partner. Her story highlights her tremendous resilience in the wake of tragedy.
Caitlin Myers joined the Middlebury economics department in 2005. She teaches courses in urban economics and empirical methodologies, and enthusiastically supervises a senior research workshop most spring semesters. Caitlin’s research intersects issues related to gender, race and the economy. Her current projects estimate how reproductive policies influence social and economic outcomes. Caitlin grew up in Burnsville, West Virginia, and LaGrange, Georgia.
Established in January 2015, It’s Not What You Think brings together members of the college community around stories of the unanticipated ways that life unfolds, including failures, defeats, tragedies, and radical life changes. Sponsored by the offices of the Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Vice President for Student Affairs.
