Expertise & Interests

Her research explores conceptual interaction between cultural landscape, nature, and region, with recognition of the co-existence and interaction of human and extra-human aspects of landscape and environment. Urban, suburban, pastoral, and wild contexts are considered, as is the possibility that aspects of the aforementioned contexts easily co-exist on the same site.


Following practice in the cities of Denver, Baltimore, and Ann Arbor she transitioned to an academic career, joining the faculty of University of Tennessee in 1991.

Courses Taught

In the college, Prof. Moir-McClean coordinates and teaches the 5th year self-directed project sequence. In addition, she offers seminar courses that explore ethical and philosophical positions related to her research interests.
