Cameron “Cammie” Lee is a cultural critic. She concentrated in English at Princeton University and received certificates in Asian American Studies, East Asian Studies, and Gender and Sexuality Studies, with focuses in Art History, Film and Media Theory. In her junior paper (2020-21), she examined the politics of skin and language in Theresa Hak Kyung Cha’s Dictee and Ocean Vuong’s On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous, drawing from Frantz Fanon’s Black Skin, White Masks as an intertext. Her award-winning thesis explored olfactory aesthetics through the works of three Asian women: Anicka Yi, an Asian American sculpture/installation artist based out of New York; Lee Bul, a Korean installation/performance artist based out of South Korea; and Salt Fish Girl, a novel by the Asian Canadian writer Larissa Lai. During 2023, Cammie taught English language and world culture at a middle school in South Korea, sponsored by a Fulbright award. Cammie is originally from Portland, OR.
