About me

Jenny Rintoul teaches Visual Culture on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in the School of Arts, and supervises PhD students. She runs the second year undergradute Visual Culture module, Creative Analysis, which is a cross-disciplinary module for six art and design programmes within the School.

Jenny leads the Visual Culture Research Group, a cross-disciplinary group of creative practitioners, makers and writers interested in visuality and visual culture (https://vcrg.co.uk/). Jenny is a member of the WoW (Ways of Writing in art and design) research network. She is on the Faculty Research Ethics Committee board of members, the UWE AI Education Working Group, and is an Assessment Offence Advisor for CATE.

Jenny's current research interests are in two strands: iconography of the Nursing Virgin in relation to maternal femininities, and art and design education. Her research on art and design education focusses on Visual Culture/Critical and Contextual Studies pedagogies, including relationships between making and writing, embodied knowledges, and the reification of 'intuition' and 'integration'. Her monograph published by Routledge includes proposals for integrating Critical and Contextual Studies with studio practice through their curricula separation from one another. 

Areas of interest for supervision include: Art and Design education; Visual Culture pedagogies; British art school histories; Writing and creative practice; Curriculum Studies; Embodiment; Representations of maternal femininities; Iconography of the Nursing Virgin; Qualitative research methods (particularly case study design and interview methods).
