Decolonising Place-Based Arts Research Book

This project began as part of a Visiting Fellow residency for the Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) within the University of Minnesota, Funded by a Mellon Foundation Grant.


Professor Mary Modeen spoke with Professor Christine Baeumler, Head of the Art department, and Professor Jennifer Gunn, Director of IAS, and they quickly arrived at a series of three PhD/MFA symposia called "Ethics, Art, Advocacy and Decolonizing Place Based Research."

Decolonising Place-Based Arts Research, 2021. Editor Prof. Mary Modeen.

A group of 10 graduate researchers, a combination of PhDs/MFAs, with creative, material, cultural and performative practices from both Duncan of Jordanstone Collage of Art and Design, University of Dundee and University of Minnesota, formed a cohort of participants in these symposia, with Professor Baeumler and Professor Modeen as co-hosts.

In addition to the web-based platform hosted by IAS, a renewed research network, and the numerous informal connections made among participants, this book provides a space to further engage with the themes and conversations begun at the initial symposia.
