Dr Pat Hurrell

Lecturer in Contextual Studies

Pat has been a part-time lecturer in Critical and Cultural Studies on the BA (Hons) in Photography at the University of Suffolk since 2007. She gained a BA in Art and Design with Literary Studies at Suffolk College in 1998 and completed an MA with distinction in History and Theory of Modern Art at the University of Essex in 1999. Her PhD at the University of Essex, on the historical and contemporary artistic representation of women in relation to hysteria, had a strong emphasis on photography and was awarded in 2004. A commission to write a book about a local sculptor, Bernard Reynolds, was undertaken the following year, and this stimulated an interest in the art and culture of East Anglia which underpins Pat’s most recent research.
