About me

Jenny Rintoul is a Senior Lecturer in Visual Culture, and teaches across both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the school of Art & Design. She manages an undergraduate Visual Culture module that is delivered to second year students across seven Art & Design programmes. She is a member of the UWE Visual Culture Research Group (VCRG) and a PhD supervisor. 

Jenny has previously worked in dance, gallery education and as a FE teacher of Art & Design, History of Art, and Critical & Contextual Studies within Performing Arts, Musical Theatre and Art & Design.  

Jenny's current research interests are in two areas: embodiment, particularly embodied knowledges and constructions of femininity; and Art & Design education, particularly at FE and HE level. Her work on Art & Design education covers constructions of theory and practice, and the reification of the terms 'intuition' and 'integration'. Her monograph published by Routledge includes proposals for integrating Critical & Contextual Studies and studio practice through their curricula separation from one another.

Areas of expertise include: Art Education & Arts Pedagogies (particularly English school and post-compulsory systems of education); Art School histories (in England and in the context of Europe and the US); Curriculum studies (particularly knowledge hierarchies and subject integration); Gender studies (particularly femininities); Marian studies (particularly iconography of the Nursing Virgin); Embodied knowledges; Constructions of 'theory' and 'practice'; Qualitative research methods (particularly case study design and interview methods).
