Patricia Eunji Kim is a PhD Candidate in the History of Art at the University of Pennsylvania, where she specializes in the art and archaeology of the late Classical and Hellenistic Greek worlds. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of California, Berkeley in Near Eastern Archaeology and the History of Art. 

At Penn, her main interests include representations of gender, sexuality, and the body, issues of cross-cultural interaction in the Middle East and Central Asia, and dynastic and royal art. Her dissertation, "Embodying Femininity and Engendering Power in Greek Dynastic Art (5th-1st c BCE)," considers these issues through fresh perspectives. Additionally, her academic and advocacy work includes contributions to conversations in cultural heritage, environmental humanities, and digital humanities.
