Nancy L. Zingrone From July 2000 through December 2008, Nancy L. Zingrone was the Director of Publications and Executive Editor of the International Journal of Parapsychology for the Parapsychology Foundation. From 2009 through 2014, and since 2015 as a Research Fellow and consultant, she has been involved with a number of PF projects including working on the content of the Parapsychology Foundation's websites.
Nancy has published more than 30 research articles in a variety of journals in the field and in psychology including the Journal of Parapsychology, the European Journal of Parapsychology, and Imagination, Cognition and Personality. Her work has been funded by Parapsychology Foundation, the Perrott-Warrick Fund, the Society for Psychical Research, the Institut für Grenzegebiete der Psychologie und Psychohygiene, and more recently, the Bial Foundation. Her primary areas of interest are the history of criticism and response in the English-language scientific and academic literatures, and personality correlates of such psychic experiences as aura vision, out-of body experiences (OBE's), and apparitions.
Dr. Zingrone has been active in parapsychological research for more than three decades, holding a variety of positions in the field. She was a founding member of the Midwest Psi Research Institute in 1977 in Chicago, its Director of Education until 1980, and its Executive Director until 1982. From 1982 to 1993 she was first a Research Fellow and then a Visiting Scholar at the Institute for Parapsychology in Durham, North Carolina, now known as the Rhine Research Center. There she focused on experimental and historical research in parapsychology and directed the first Ganzfeld experiments conducted at that laboratory. She was also an active member of the Parapsychological Association for more than two decades, serving on its Board of Directors at various times, and holding the office of President twice, first in 2001–2002, and later in 2003–2004. Most recently, she was the Arrangements Chair of the Parapsychological Association Convention held in Durham, North Carolina in 2012. Dr. Zingrone was the Editor of the Association's newsletter, PA News, from 1990 to 1999, and an editor of the 1993 proceedings, Research in Parapsychology. More recently she has been appointed to the Grants Committee of the PA.
Raised in Woodstock, Illinois, Dr. Zingrone obtained her BA in psychology from Mundelein College in Chicago (now subsumed under Loyola University), and has an MSEd in Community College Education with psychology as a teaching specialty from Northern Illinois University. She did graduate work in history of science at Duke University where she obtained doctoral candidacy before she withdrew to return to psychology and parapsychology. She obtained a PhD in psychology at the University of Edinburgh, primarily under the direction of the late Koestler Professor Robert L. Morris. In addition, Zingrone held an adjunct appointment as an Assistant Professor of Research in Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the Division of Perceptual Studies at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia from March of 2003 until May of 2010, while establishing and operating a virtual office for the Parapsychology Foundation in Charlottesville from 2003 to 2008. From May of 2010 until January of 2013, she held the position of Director of Academic and Administrative Affairs at Atlantic University in Virginia Beach, Virginia. She was also a Visiting Scholar at the Rhine Research Center in Durham, North Carolina, as well as a faculty member of the Rhine Education Center from April of 2013 through November of 2014.
Currently, she is also an adjunct professor of psychology at Northcentral University, a premium teacher on the social media teaching platform, WizIQ, the co-developer and founder of both the Alvarado Zingrone Institute for Research and Education in the virtual world Second Life, and the new YouTube Channel Parapsychology Online and its companion website. Because of her long-standing interest in education, and more recently in online education, she maintains both her Thinking about Learning blog and her YouTube channel Teaching and Learning Online. She also manages The AZIRE's Moodle teaching site and, of course, remains an active volunteer for the Parapsychology Foundation.

...
Nancy L. Zingrone From July 2000 through December 2008, Dr. Nancy L. Zingrone was the Director of Publications and Executive Editor of the International Journal of Parapsychology for the Parapsychology Foundation. She served as President of the Parapsychological Association (PA) in 1999-2001 and again in 2003-2004. Besides research specific to her doctoral dissertation (see below) her primary areas of study are the relationship of aspects of personality to such psychic experiences as aura vision, out-of body experiences (OBEs), and apparitions.
Dr. Zingrone has been active in parapsychological research for more than three decades and has held a variety of positions in the field. She was a founding member of the Midwest Psi Research Institute in 1977 in Chicago, its Director of Education until 1980, and its Executive Director until 1982. From 1982 to 1993 she was first a Research Fellow and then a Visiting Scholar at the Institute for Parapsychology in Durham, North Carolina, now known as the Rhine Research Center. There she focused on experimental and historical research in parapsychology and directed the first Ganzfeld experiments conducted at that laboratory. She has also been an active member of the Parapsychological Association since 1980s, served several terms on its Board of Directors and was elected President twice. Dr. Zingrone was the Editor of the Association's newsletter, PA News, from 1990 to 1999, and editor of one of its proceedings, Research in Parapsychology, 1993. From May 2010 until March of 2014, she served on the Board of Directors of the Rhine Research Center. Since April of 2013, she has once again been a Visiting Scholar at the Rhine, as well as an instructor in the Rhine Education Center.
Originally from the Chicago area, Dr. Zingrone obtained her BA in psychology from Mundelein College in Chicago (now subsumed under Loyola University) in 1974, and her MSEd in Higher Education from Northern Illinois University in 1977, with an emphasis on Community College Education and with psychology as a teaching specialty. She did graduate work in history of science at Duke University where she obtained doctoral candidacy before she withdrew in 1993 to return to psychology and parapsychology. She was awarded a PhD in psychology at the University of Edinburgh in 2006. Her dissertation research was funded by the Parapsychology Foundation (New York City), the Society for Psychical Research (London, England), the Perrott-Warrick Fund (Cambridge, England) and the Institut für Grenzgebiete der Psychologie und Psychohygiene (Freiburg, Germany). Her doctoral thesis centered on the history and rhetoric of criticism and response in parapsychology.
More recently (2008 through 2010) she has received grants for her research from the Society for Psychical Research and the Bial Foundation, the former to develop a new case collection on out-of-body experiences and the latter to conduct a survey study of the relationship of adult memories of childhood imaginary companions to psychic and dream experiences. Both studies are still on-going.
From 1995 through July of 2000, she co-directed the Centro de Estudios Integrales en Puerto Rico. From 1998 through July of 2000 when she came on staff of the Foundation, Zingrone managed the development of the new series of publications that launched in the early 2000s at the Foundation through her publishing house, Puente Publications. From 2003 through early 2010, she held an Assistant Professorship of Research at the Division of Perceptual Studies in the Department of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia. From May of 2010 until January of 2013 she was the Director of Academic and Administrative Affairs at Atlantic University in Virginia Beach, Virginia, as well as a faculty member. Since February of 2013, when she and her husband, Dr. Carlos S. Alvarado returned to North Carolina, she has been involved in a variety of educational projects in the field including establishing the YouTube Channel, Parapsychology Online as well as teaching courses, giving lectures on the topic and organizing online conferences on the WizIQ Virtual Classroom social media teaching platform.
Dr. Zingrone volunteers regularly for the Parapsychology Foundation in a variety of capacities as well.

PA 2007 Convention Report

www.pflyceum.org [cached]

Hence my expectations were pitched rather high: I anticipated this convention to be the largest and most impressive ever. (The picture to the left is myself, PF's Director of Publications Nancy Zingrone, and PF International Affiliate from Argentina, Alejandro Parra at the Affiliate Lunch held during the convention.)

The first one was on the achievements of the recently deceased Ian Stevenson in the field, particularly on his research on the spontaneous cases, primarily but not limited to CORT (speakers including Nancy Zingrone, Erlendur Haraldsson, Carlos Alvarado, and John Palmer).
