Summary of research interests and expertise:

Emily Pringle trained originally as a painter and worked for several years as an artist, educator, programmer, researcher and writer.  She joined Tate as Head of Learning Practice and Research in 2010, with a responsibility to develop practice-based research across the Learning department.  In 2018 she stepped away from Tate for a year to undertake an AHRC Leadership Fellowship and research and write on research in the art museum.  The publication that emerged from this – Rethinking Research in the Art Museum (Routledge, 2019) – interrogates how research can support museums to situate themselves as sites of knowledge co-production.  In 2019 Emily was appointed Head of Research at Tate.
