SF State Pre-Doctoral Scholar


 

Sylvie Kim, Asian American Studies graduate student

 

Sylvie Kim received her undergraduate degree in English from Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, where she was raised. She has completed two years of national volunteer service with AmeriCorps in Washington, D.C. and San Jose, California, and worked in academic publishing before beginning the Asian American Studies master's program at S.F. State. She currently serves as the blog co-editor for Hyphen magazine (http://hyphenmagazine.com/), the only national Asian American-interest arts and politics publication in the country. She formerly served as their film editor. She hopes to pursue a Ph.D. in Communication or Media Studies to focus on constructions of race and masculinity in mass media, particularly on the internet.

 

Update: Sylvie’s essay, "The End of Spam Shame: On Class, Colonialism, and Canned Meat,” was published in Reading Pop Culture (Jeff Ousborne, ed., Bedford St. Martin’s Press, 2013). Congratulations Sylvie! t.
