Michael P. Corey
Michael Corey earned his Ph.D. in Sociology from the New School for Social Research some 40 years after he earned his MA in Sociology from the same program before being called to serve in Vietnam, with early areas of expertise in the sociology of knowledge, culture, and religion, largely through the influence of Peter Berger and Thomas Luckmann.
Michael worked for several decades as a core member of the Senior Management Leadership Team of Champion International before returning to The New School for Social Research, where he was awarded a Ph.D. in sociology in 2010, specializing in the sociology of culture and the sociology of knowledge and working closely with Jeffrey Goldfarb. While there, Michael taught a course called “The Vietnam Conflict (s): A Multitude of Socially Constructed Realities” at Eugene Lang College. Michael’s dissertation, chaired by Jeffrey Goldfarb, combined his interest in small things, memory and the Vietnam War, and was entitled “The Vietnam War Zippo Lighter: An Entry Point for Examining Personal, Interpersonal, Collected and Collective Memory Making.”
