Dr Gemma Mackman is not a conventional person, and so she was fated to a lifetime of the study of 'others' through Criminology and Sociology.
Over 20 years ago, Gemma started studying the fascinating world of new age traveller communities, learning how they are often misjudged and vilified. She soon launched her own research agency and undertook a 6-year PHD exploring the tribal phenomenon of music festival-goers.
Community and emotional enrichment go hand-in-hand, and Gemma enlightens us with a most fascinating insight into a world often overlooked and neglected, to the detriment of our understanding of her much-loved word: deviance.
