PATRICIA EUNJI KIM
Patricia Eunji Kim is a writer, curator, and art historian based in Philadelphia and Los Angeles. She will receive a PhD in the History of Art at the University of Pennsylvania, and as of Fall 2019, will be an Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow at New York University as a Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellow.
She writes and researches on art, cultural heritage, and women from the ancient world to the present. Her dissertation was the first synthetic study of the art and archaeology of Hellenistic queens and royal women, and, at present, she is developing a project on women and monuments.
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.
Moreover, she actively communicates archaeological and arts-oriented perspectives on environmental issues. She is editor of one forthcoming book, Timescales: Ecological Temporalities Across Disciplines (University of Minnesota Press, 2020), and author of a forthcoming article on women and cultural heritage (Archaeological Papers of the American Anthropological Association, 2020).
Her work has received grants and awards from the National Geographic Foundation, the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities, Kolb Society, among others. Publicly engaged, her work has also featured (selections) on MonumentLab, Newsworks, the Washington Post, The New York Times, and France24.
