Dr Lucy Wenham

Biography

I completed a PhD in Sociology of Education at the IoE in London, before becoming a Lecturer in Education at the University of Bristol. I am 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 my research is ethnographic and I prefer a grounded theory approach to analysis in order to allow the voices of the marginalised to shine through. I am also drawn to critical pedagogies, as well as issues surrounding knowledge in the classroom.
