ALISON VICTORIA SHEPHERD

academic, artist, writer, teacher.

Thanks for visiting my website! I am a PhD student studying migration, education, and language using participatory and visual methods. I hold a BA and MA in Global Development from the University of Leeds (UK) and an MA in Education Policy from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (USA).

I am a trained English teacher from the North of England and have been teaching for over a decade in the UK, El Salvador, Mexico, Myanmar, Spain, and most recently Greece where I worked with people seeking sanctuary in Europe.

An artist at heart, I paint with oils but also enjoy experimenting with other mediums, including photography. As well as academic writing I also write poetry, short stories, and non-fiction and have been published in various outlets including the Times Educational Supplement. Browse my work above!
