Chair of Languages and Professor of French
Introduction

Susan Myers, a native of New Jersey, completed her undergraduate degree in English and French at Houghton College, New York, spending her junior year abroad in Tours, France. She received her Masters degree in French from Bowling Green State University, Ohio, including another year abroad, first in Paris, then in Tours. She completed her doctorate in French Literature from Indiana University-Bloomington, Indiana. She has taught English in Pennsville High School, New Jersey and worked as an in-home tutor before moving on to teaching college level French at Baldwin-Wallace College, Berea, Ohio, after marrying her husband, Allen, who was working as a musician in Cleveland. They moved to Liberty, Missouri, in 1995 when Susan accepted the position of French at William Jewell College. Her husband completed his Doctorate of Musical Arts in Composition from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and pursues a career in musical performance and composition. The couple is raising two daughters, Caitlin and Sarah.

Now a professor of French, Dr. Myers teaches at William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri, and chairs the Languages Department. She is the author of two articles on Sébastien Japrisot, the first, “Sébastien Japrisot: It’s a Crazy Game, the Search for Truth,” published in French Prose in 2000, edited by Michael Bishop and Christopher Elson; and the second, “La passion des femmes” in 813: les amis de la littérature policière. She has recently finished “An Allegory of Reading: Ambiguity, Discovery and the Reader’s Role in Sébastien Japrisot’s Piège pour Cendrillon” for inclusion as a chapter in Sébastien Japrisot: The Art of Crime edited by Martin Hurcombe and Simon Kemp, published 2009.

As chair of the Languages Department at Jewell, Dr. Myers has overseen the development of the Romance Languages Major, the Arabic Area Studies Minor, the Chinese Area Studies Minor, and has won two grants to improve the technology of the Languages Seminar Room and to improve the learning environment of the Language Lab.
