Michel Ghanem (he/him) aka tvscholar

Hi! I’m Michel. I have a Master of Arts in fashion studies from Toronto Metropolitan University, during which I wrote a thesis on costume design and madness on television through the lens of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. I engaged in some doctoral work and research in a PhD program before withdrawing in early 2020, but I’m still disseminating my experience in grad school, discourse on television and its multiplicities. I’m constantly watching/learning/writing about television as much as I can, which is how this newsletter came to be.

This newsletter is predominantly written from my apartment in Vancouver, on the unceded and ancestral territory of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh speaking peoples, the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
