Mary Modeen is an artist/academic whose research links creative practice with interdisciplinary academic studies in the humanities, particularly philosophy, literature, cultural geography, feminist and Indigenous studies.


Professor Modeen has lectured and researched for many years in Scotland, and the USA, with brief periods in Aotearoa/New Zealand and Australia. Her PhD and postgraduate supervision is also characterised by interdisciplinary investigations, linking studio practice with academic enquiry. International research networks, three of which Modeen co-convenes (PLaCE InternationalMapping Spectral Traces, and LAND2) are central in conducting the critical discourse which address, challenge and strengthen these research insights.
