Assoc Professor,


Eunsong Kim is an associate professor in the Department of English. Her practice spans: poetry, critical theory, translation, visual culture and critical race and ethnic studies. Her forthcoming monograph, "The Politics of Collecting: Property & Race in Aesthetic Formation" (Duke University Press) materializes the histories of immaterialism by examining the rise of US museums, avant-garde forms, and neoliberal aesthetics, to consider how race and property become foundational to modern artistic institutions. Her writings have appeared in: Lateral: Journal of the Cultural Studies Association, Journal of Critical Library and Information Studies, and in the book anthologies, "Poetics of Social Engagement and Reading Modernism with Machines." She is the author of "gospel of regicide" (2017), and with Sung Gi Kim she translated Kim Eon Hee’s poetic text "Have You Been Feeling Blue These Days?" (2019). She’s the recipient of the Ford Foundation Fellowship, Yale's Poynter Fellowship, and a grant from the Andy Warhol Art Writers Program. In 2021 she co-founded offshoot, an arts space for transnational activist conversations.
