Assistant Professor of Economics Emily Conover, together with colleagues from Amherst, Colgate, Wesleyan and Vassar, co-organized the second Liberal Arts Colleges Development Economic Conference (LAC-DEV). The conference was hosted by Colgate University on Sept. 26-27.
Eleven papers were presented and discussed during the conference, and there was a teaching panel discussion focusing on undergraduate honors research in development economics. Conover chaired a session on migration and also discussed a paper.
The conference was created as a place for professors at liberal arts colleges to present their research and discuss teaching strategies in development economics.
