Senior Lecturer in Inclusive Education, Goldsmiths, University of London

Based at Goldsmiths, University of London in the Department of Educational Studies, Anna’s areas of research and teaching cluster around social justice, youth voice, inclusion, social policy, behaviour management, and special educational needs. After a period as a youth worker and counsellor, Anna took her first degree in law, and then became a teacher of young people with Asperger's and Tourette's Syndromes and those labelled as having 'behaviour disorders' and with mental health diagnoses. Anna also worked in a multi-agency team within an urban local authority to support young people who had been permanently excluded from school back into mainstream education.Her work seeks to addresses issues of institutional prejudice on the basis of race and ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and class, and is fundamentally designed as a collaboration with parents, school professionals, community organisations, and young people.
