Dr Jeremy Howard
Jeremy Howard works on central and east European art, architecture and design as well as on the relationships between art and education. He is particularly concerned with the representation, spaces and experiences of schooling, and grapples with the socio-political and pedagogic values that these may entail or involve. He has a long-standing interest in, and commitment to, cross-cultural communication. The direction of his teaching, learning and research is partially derived from a desire to probe disciplinary limitations. He is also known as a specialist in the regional variations of Art Nouveau, National/Transnational Styles, and Russian art. In the main he explores questions about the shifting expression of collective and individual identity through studies of visually-based paradigms.
Jeremy received his PhD in Art History from the University of St Andrews in 1991. Prior to this he studied at the Universities of Leningrad (St Petersburg) and Lancaster, and worked at: Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee; the Occupational Therapy department of the Ida Darwin Hospital, Cambridge; Bedford Housing Link; Amersham Auction Rooms; and as a travel journalist.
