About the Author:
Viet Thanh Nguyen is the Aerol Arnold Chair of English and Professor of English and American Studies and Ethnicity at the University of Southern California. Nguyen was born in Buon Me Thuot, Vietnam in 1971, the son of immigrants from North Vietnam who moved south in 1954. After the fall of Saigon, in 1975, his family fled to the United States. Nguyen’s family first settled in Fort Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania, which was one of four American camps that accommodated refugees from Vietnam. His family later moved to San Jose, California, where they opened up a Vietnamese grocery store, one of the first of its kind in the area. While growing up in San Jose, Nguyen attended St. Patrick’s School and Bellarmine College Preparatory from which he graduated.
Nguyen briefly attended the University of California Riverside and UCLA before finally deciding to finish his studies at the University of California, Berkeley, where in May 1992 he graduated from and obtained both a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in English, and another B.A. degree in Ethnic Studies. Nguyen also received his Ph.D. in English from UC Berkeley in May 1997. In 1997 he moved to Los Angeles for a teaching position as an assistant professor at the University of Southern California in both the English Department, and in the American Studies and Ethnicity Department. In 2003, he became an associate professor in the two departments. In addition to teaching and writing, Nguyen also serves as cultural critic-at-large for The Los Angeles Times and is an editor of diaCRITICS, a blog for the Diasporic Vietnamese Artists Network.
