Patricia Eunji Kim is a scholar, writer, and curator based in New York City. She is Assistant Professor and Faculty Fellow at New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Studies. Click here to download a current cv.

She writes and researches on art, archaeology, cultural heritage, and women from the ancient world to the present. Currently, she is writing a book on the art and archaeology of Hellenistic queens and royal women, and developing a project on women and public art. Her work engages with discourses in feminisms, postcolonial theory, cultural heritage studies, and the environmental humanities.

Committed to public access and engagement, she has experimented with research and curatorial methods that create open knowledge communities and foster open access. To that end, she has collaborated with artists, scientists, and experts in civic tech and data to develop art installations and tell stories through analog and digital media. She is the Communications Director and Assistant Curator at Monument Lab, a think tank on public art and public history. Patricia also co-directs Data Refuge and co-hosts a podcast called Data Remediations, and is co-founder of Storicity, an audio guide app that connects people with cities through storytelling. She brings together these different publicly-engaged, arts-oriented projects as the steward and organizer of the Urban Democracy Lab’s Humanizing Data working group at NYU’s Gallatin School.

Her work has received grants and awards from the National Geographic Foundation, the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities, Kolb Society, among others. Her work has also featured (selections) on MonumentLab, Newsworks, the Washington Post, The New York Times, and France24.
