About me

Jenny Rintoul teaches Visual Culture across both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the School of Art and Design and supervises PhD students. She runs the second year undergradute Visual Culture module, Creative Analysis, which is a cross-disciplinary module that brings together six art and design programmes within the School.

Jenny is a member of the WoW (Ways of Writing in art and design) research network and leads the Visual Culture Research Group, which is a cross-disciplinary group of art and design practitioners, makers and writers interested in visuality and visual culture (https://vcrg.co.uk/). Jenny is a member of the ACE Faculty Research Ethics Committee.

Jenny's current research interests are in two areas: embodiment, particularly embodied knowledges and constructions of maternal femininities; and art education, particularly the teaching of Visual Culture (and related courses such as Critical and Contextual Studies) within art and design programmes. Her work on art 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 and Contextual Studies with studio practice through their curricula separation from one another. 

Areas of interest for supervision include: Art education and arts pedagogies; British art school histories; Relationships between writing and making; Curriculum studies; Embodied knowledges and intuition; Representations of maternal femininities; Iconography of the Nursing Virgin; Qualitative research methods (particularly case study design and interview methods).
