This study looks at the working lives of women working in art education within higher education. Where appropriate, distinctions are made between the experiences and perceptions of women fine artists and women art theorists. In Chapter One I locate this study within its wider cultural context in order.to explain the significance of art education employment for women. Chapter Two describes the gendered historical developments in art education and recent key developments in higher education in order to locate this study within its wider social, economic and political contexts. Chapter Three discusses the feminist methodology, the rationale for combining quantitative (postal survey) and qualitative (life/work history and semi-structured interviews) research methods and the ethical issues involved in this study. In Chapter Four I report the survey findings in a narrative supported by frequency tables and illustrated by qualitative responses. Chapter Five sets out the key themes from the interviews which extend the survey findings. In Chapter Six I revisit the substantive issues, reflect on the research methods and strategies, suggest future research which could develop aspects of this study and synthesise the threads of the thesis. Together the national database and interview materials in this study make a contribution to the discourses of women and art by making visible the lives of women working in art education within higher education. What is of particular interest in this study of women's higher education employment is that I am able to comment on the forms of part-time work in fine art education which are unusual in the context of high status part-time work.
