Please join Middlebury faculty, students, and staff on Thursday, November 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Hillcrest 103 (the Orchard Room), for the first It’s Not What You Think event of the 2016-2017 academic year. Refreshments will be served!

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.

Eliza Renner ’18 is the event’s student moderator.

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.
