Eunsong Kim is the author of gospel of regicide (Noemi Press, 2017) and, with Sung Gi Kim, she translated Kim Eon Hee’s poetic text Have You Been Feeling Blue These Days? (Noemi Press, 2019). Kim’s forthcoming academic monograph, The Politics of Collecting: Property & Race in Aesthetic Formation (Duke University Press), materializes the histories of immaterialism by examining the rise of U.S. museums, avant-garde forms, digitization, and neoliberal aesthetics, to consider how race and property became foundational to modern artistic institutions.
Kim’s writings have appeared in: Lateral: Journal of the Cultural Studies Association, Journal of Critical Library and Information Studies, and in the anthologies, American Poets in the 21st Century: Poetics of Social Engagement (Wesleyan University Press, 2018), edited by Claudia Rankine and Michael Dowdy, and Reading Modernism with Machines: Digital Humanities and Modern Literature (Springer, 2016), edited by Shawna Ross and James O’Sullivan. Her poetry has appeared in Brooklyn Magazine, The Iowa Review, and The Minnesota Review, among other publications.
Kim is the recipient of a Ford Foundation Fellowship, a grant from the Andy Warhol Arts Writers Program, and Yale University’s Poynter Fellowship. In 2021 she co-founded offshoot, an arts space for transnational activist conversations.
Kim has taught at Northeastern University and is currently an associate professor in the department of English at Arizona State University. Her practice spans poetry, translation, visual culture, and critical race and ethnic studies. In September 2023, Kim will serve as Guest Editor of the Poem-a-Day series.
