Emeritus Professor Alan Bishop was Professor of Education at Monash University between 1992-2002,
after spending most of his working life in the Department of Education at Cambridge University, UK.
He has been involved with research in mathematics education all his life,
and his Cambridge experience led him to focus attention during the last 20 years on the cultural,
social and political issues involved in mathematics education.
These interests also relate to the cultural role of language and he has been involved
with the international language Esperanto for many years.
He was Director of the Monash research project EKPAROLI which demonstrate the usefulness
of Esperanto as the first LOTE.
He is the author or editor of several influential books, reports, articles and chapters
on mathematics education.
He also enjoys music and singing and is President of the Muzika Esperanto-Ligo.
