KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - A University of Michigan economist will speak in Kalamazoo about the Great Recession as part of a lecture series focused on the major downturn that officially ended in 2009 after 18 months.

Kathryn Dominguez speaks Wednesday afternoon at Western Michigan University’s Brown Hall. Her presentation, “International Dimensions of the Great Recession and the Weak Recovery,” is free and open to the public.

Dominguez also is a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research.

The theme of the series is “Lessons from the Great Recession.” It features economists from across the country.

The recession began in December 2007 and became the longest and deepest since the Great Depression of the 1930s. It occurred after losses on subprime mortgages battered the U.S. housing market.
