ALISON VICTORIA SHEPHERD

TEACHER, academic, WRITER, artist.

I am a PhD student studying migration, education, and language using participatory and visual methods at 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.
