Jean (Hyemin) Kim (they/them) holds a PhD in Comparative Literature from SUNY Buffalo with a specialization in poetics. Their research centers around non/human mythopoetics and queer aesthetics in twentieth- and twenty-first-century artists’ literature, books, and cinema. In that direction, they recently published a commissioned essay on Stan VanDerBeek’s computer-aided 16mm film series Poemfield (1967–1971). Also, among others, their essay on posthumanity in João Pedro Rodrigues’s film, The Ornithologist (2016), will be published by Edinburgh University Press in early 2021. In addition, they are writing a book manuscript on the intersection of poetry and cinema. Jean (Hyemin) Kim currently teaches in the English Department at Baruch, CUNY.
