Jo Hassall


About Jo Hassall

Jo Hassall is a Senior Lecturer in Graphic Arts and Design. Her practice-based research explores ways in which visual props can activate sites of learning.

With an established background in illustration and collage processes – current areas of work extend these methods within an educational context to explore and illuminate processes of study. The focus of her PhD was around the notion of the bricoleuse as hostess of the learning space, integrating bricolage and feminist pedagogic approaches to trigger playful and accessible space for critical enquiry, design thinking and making.

Transforming the way we express equality: “Our feminist approach offers students a space to discuss gender and equality through art and design practice.” - Dr Casey Orr, Dr Liz Stirling and Jo Hassall

Research Interests

Jo is a member of feminist art collective, F=. Working collaboratively and with students and wider communities in the design and delivery of public events, using spectacle and humour to query, disrupt and explore mechanisms for social and political engagement and change making. This model of practice has helped shape both the curriculum and the student experience and community participation at a local level and nationally and internationally across art and design, feminist practices and educational fields of practice.

Collaborative and individual research projects and outcomes include conference papers, workshops, performance lectures, journal articles and co-design and delivery of graduate summer school, The Exploding University, forged through cross-university partnerships to explore the potential of collaborative learning space for socially engaged design.
