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 leads the Visual Culture Research Group, which is a group of cross-disciplinary 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 ACE Faculty Research Ethics Committee board of members.

Jenny's current research interests are in two strands: iconography of the Nursing Virgin in the context of 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 includes 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 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).
