Dr. Alison Macdonald FHEA (Head of Teaching, UCL Anthropology | Deputy Head of Department, Outreach and WP Tutor) email@example.com
Dr. Macdonald is a social anthropologist interested in the context of educational exclusion and young people in the UK. Research funded by a 2018 Grand Challenges Adolescent Lives Grant focuses on the experiences of young people who have previously been permanently excluded from state school and attended alterative learning provisions. This involved the production of a short collaborative documentary film, People Like Us, which traced the subjective reflections and aspirations of two young men post exclusion.
