Co-founder

Patricia Eunji Kim is a PhD Candidate in the History of Art at the University of Pennsylvania, specializing in the art and archaeology of the late Classical and Hellenistic worlds and gender, sexuality and women’s studies. Her academic and advocacy work also includes contributions to conversations in cultural heritage, environmental humanities, and digital humanities. Committed to public access and engagement, she has assisted curatorial shows at the Penn Museum (Sex: A History in 30 Objects; The Golden Age of King Midas; Cultures in the Crossfire: Stories from Syria and Iraq) and was the lead curator of the installation Date/um: Ecological Temporalities of the Schuylkill River, which displayed at three different sites throughout Philadelphia. At present, she is co-editing a forthcoming volume, Timescales: Ecological Temporalities Across Disciplines (with Carolyn Fornoff and Bethany Wiggin), which features scholars, activists, and artists from various fields to think through issues of the environment and time. She has also communicated archaeological and humanities perspectives on environmental issues to non-academic audiences as a contributor to the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities (PPEH). In 2016, she co-founded Data Refuge, which was the recipient of a SPARC Innovator Award and  a storytelling grant from National Geographic. The next phase of Data Refuge explores collaborative and collective modes of storytelling about the use of environmental and climate data by local communities and across the globe, and will include an installation about art, data, and ecology at the National Geographic headquarters in 2019.
