Brief Biography

Alexander Allison enrolled at IPFW in the fall of 2009. Initially interested in comparative literature, Alex quickly realized that his academic interests were better suited for the fields of history and Spanish. Since then, Alex has enjoyed studying a diverse group of historical topics and has made significant strides towards becoming fluent in Spanish. In 2010, Alex studied abroad in Salamanca, Spain. More recently, he spent a semester in Valparaíso, Chile where he studied at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso. In his free time he enjoys reading, and is particularly fond of authors Gabriel García Márquez and Chinua Achebe. Together with Dr. Richard Weiner, Alex is co-authoring an article on Immanuel Wallenstein and his Worlds-System theory for publication in OUP’s forthcoming Encyclopedia of World Poverty.

In January of 2015, Alex will move to Barcelona, Spain where he intends to both improve his Spanish and celebrate his youth.
