angry reader of the week: minh-ha t. pham

Here we are again. Gather 'round, because we're going to meet the Angry Reader of the Week, spotlighting you, the very special readers of this website. Over the years, I've been able to connect with a lot of cool folks, and this is a way of showing some appreciation and attention to the people who help make this blog what it is. This week's Angry Reader is Minh-Ha T. Pham.

Who are you?
Minh-Ha T. Pham.

What are you?
I'm an Assistant Professor in the History of Art & Visual Studies department and Asian American Studies program at Cornell University. Also, I'm a proud graduate of the California public school system (K-PhD), a happy New Yorker (practically a unicorn!), and a retired tarot card reader.

Where are you?
Smile Cafe, and one of my favorite neighborhoods in New York City.

Where are you from?
New York by way of Oakland by way of Ventura by way of Viet Nam.

What do you do?
I teach about race, gender, and digital/pop culture at Cornell (and I travel 236 miles each way to do it!); I write academic essays and give talks about virtual fashion bodies, environments, economies, and technologies; I blog about all of the above here and collect fashion histories there; and, more and more often these days, I dream of being an essayist. I also Internet-prowl on the daily for jumpsuits, shoes, and dresses with any kind of architectural detail.

What are you all about?
Right now, I'm really into French designers like Carven and Lahssan but I'm always about properly brewed coffee at brunch, fried chicken (skin), soufflé desserts, my mom's cooking (all the way in So.Cal), chilaquiles, sushi, my Gareth Pugh scythe ring, family, friends, creatively critical people, intellectually generous people, and tracing the interrelationships between art, society, and technology through fashion.

What makes you angry?
Unacknowledged privilege of every kind; unapologetic entitlement; unkindnesses - both casual and calculated; and cap sleeve anything.
