Madeleine Hatfield

Madeleine in VancouverI am the founder of Yellowback where I offer bespoke editorial and project management services to authors, academics, publishers and professionals. I also enjoy writing and have lived and researched in the UK, Singapore and Australia. At the moment, I live in southwest London.

This is my personal blog, with posts about my research interests (especially migration, repatriation and observations about how we make ourselves at home) as well as book reviews from my lesiure reading.

I have published and presented internationally, and I have a PhD and MA from Royal Holloway, University of London, and a BA(Hons) from the University of Durham.

You can download a summary of some of my research findings as a Cheat sheet for positive repatriations and return migrations (PDF)

I hope you enjoy this blog. Feel free to contact me about my writing or research, or leave a comment!
