Michelle Burdine is an artist and educator who creates multi-media work rooted in photographic technology from historic processes to digital media. Her visual exploration of socially constructed systems is built on foundational studies in the humanities. Her research makes visible the physical, psychogenic, and material interchanges between social institutions and personhood through explorations of time, loss, family, and social expectations imposed on the inhabitants of menstruating bodies.  

Burdine holds an MFA in Studio Art from The Ohio State University; a Master of Humanities (interdisciplinary studies of philosophy, history, and fine art) from Wright State University; and a BA in humanities from Antioch University Midwest. Burdine has led photography and new media programs at the post-secondary level since 2007 including appointments with Murray State University, The Ohio State University, and The Ohio Institute of Photography. Burdine joined Centre College in 2021.
