Cameron “Cammie” Lee is a senior at Princeton University, concentrating in English and pursuing certificates in Art History, Asian American Studies, East Asian Studies, and Gender and Sexuality Studies, with additional interests in cultural criticism, film, and media theory. In her junior paper (2020-21), she examined the politics of skin and language in Asian American literature, primarily 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 current thesis research explores 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. Cammie is originally from Portland, OR.
