Minh-Ha T. Pham is an Associate Professor in the Graduate Program in Media Studies at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Her research examines fashion labor and power in the contexts of global and digital capitalism. Her writings on the subject appear in a wide range of scholarly and mainstream publications including the The Nation, New York Times, Social Text, American Quarterly, Jacobin, and The Atlantic. She is also the author of Asians Wear Clothes on the Internet: Race, Gender, and the Work of Personal Style Blogging (Duke University Press 2015), a book that situates style blogging within the larger story of Asian feminized global fashion work.

Her current book project examines the roles social media interactions and architectures are playing in regulating the global fashion market through the establishment of cultural and social norms around property and impropriety.

Her research has been featured in, among other sites, The New York Times, The Guardian, CNN, Wall Street Journal, and Huffington Post.
