Mary Modeen is an artist and a senior academic at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee (Scotland). She teaches undergraduates and postgraduates both fine art and interdisciplinary studies, linking creative practice with academic studies in the humanities, particularly philosophy, literature, feminist and indigenous studies.
Recently, she was a co-investigator in two funded research projects: the first was a major AHRC research project entitled Poetry Beyond Text: Vision, Text and Cognition. The second was an RES funded grant entitled Engendering Dialogue: feminist thought and contemporary debates in art, science, and education.
Modeen’s recent publications include a book chapter entitled On Poohsticks and Rivers of Referents, in a book edited by Grethe Mitchell and published by Intellect (2013). Additionally, she has an article entitled ‘The Opposite of Snake: The Art of Jimmie Durham’ forthcoming in a special edition of the Journal of Surrealism in the Americas (2012)
