Isobel McDonald

Isobel McDonald is Curator of Social History at Glasgow Museums. Having originally studied archaeology at Edinburgh University, she had expected to go into fieldwork, however a chance conversation with a friend about job opportunities at the British Museum has led to a long and varied career in museums and archives. She has specifically focused on the history of Glasgow for the last 18 years and is fascinated by the city’s rich past. In recent years she has worked on a wide range of exhibitions including the history of the Red Road flats, Georgian Glasgow and ‘GlaswegAsians’ – a community-led project examining the history and contribution of the South Asian population in Glasgow.
