Anne-Marie Harrison

Anne-Marie Harrison was born and brought up in Paris but has subsequently lived in many different countries. Originally a linguist, she adapted to the many changes brought by the various relocations due to her British husband's job.

She spent 16 years in Southeast Asia (Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia) during which time she became involved with the local culture and languages through work in national Museums. She ran a charity in the slum area of Bangkok, coordinated the teaching of English to Vietnamese refugees in Singapore and created a guiding program in the Philippines.

Back in France she obtained a Master's Degree in anthropology (EHESS, Sorbonne) and  became president of a local historical society designed to help British expatriates learn about the culture of their new country of residence. Ann has developed a wide range of interesting lectures on Asia and Europe.
