Lucy Wenham

University of Bristol

Lucy Wenham completed a PhD in sociology of education at the Institute of Education in London, before becoming a lecturer in education at the University of Bristol. She is interested in issues of educational disadvantage, marginalisation and inequality. As a secondary school teacher in schools in challenging circumstances for over 15 years, much of her research is ethnographic, in order to allow the voices of the marginalised to shine through. Lucy is also drawn to critical pedagogies, as well as issues surrounding knowledge in the classroom.
