Dr. Michelle Corbin earned her Ph.D. in Sociology and her Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies in 2010 from the University of Maryland. Her dissertation project titled "Spirituality in the Laboratory: Negotiating the Politics of Knowledge in the Psychedelic Sciences" analyzed scientific research on psychedelics and spirituality from the 1930's to the present. Given the traditionally demarcated and historically hierarchical relationship between science and spirituality, she examined how the epistemological, ontological and political implications of this unusual intersection were negotiated in these sciences.
This project brings together Dr. Corbin's interests in spirituality, psychedelic consciousness exploration, science and social justice. As a spiritual practitioner and member of consciousness-oriented communities, she shares a belief in the emancipatory possibilities of spirituality and consciousness transformation. As a feminist scholar committed to liberatory politics she seeks to investigate how we can ensure that our spiritual practices and consciousness transformations can best be accountable to the multiple politics of location which constitute our lives, communities and traditions.
