Biography

Lynne Scott Constantine teaches courses on creativity, visual thinking, critical theory, film, writing for artists, and art as social action. Her personal practice in interdisciplinary arts explores chance, loss, and human communication through performance, installation, photography and video art. Constantine has presented her research on educating for social justice through the arts at many national conferences. Her most recent research, focusing on the self-study of professional practice in teaching, has been published in Perspectives in Education and The Journal of Transformative Education and in the upcoming edited volume Polyvocal Professional Development: Enacting dialogic professional learning through self-study. She was honored as a 2015 Teacher of Distinction by Mason’s Center for Teaching and Faculty Excellence.

Constantine took part in the 5th Symposium on Poetic Inquiry in Vancouver, British Columbia, presenting a new transdisciplinary, collaborative scholarly performance entitled “The World Hangs by a Thread of Verbs and Nouns: Metonymy and Poetic Inquiry in the Demilitarization of Language and the Reinvention of the World.” She holds a BA in English summa cum laude from Canisius College, an MA and an MPhil in English language and literature from Yale University, and an MFA in interdisciplinary arts from Goddard College.
