Soo-Young Kim

Visiting Assistant Professor of Anthropology (Ph.D. Columbia University 2017)

Soo-Young Kim received a B.A. in Classics from Harvard College (2006), an M.A. in Anthropology from the New School for Social Research (2009), and a Ph.D. in Anthropology from Columbia University (2017). Her work draws on economic anthropology, science studies, and the ethnographic study of the everyday to examine various ways in which the future and the economy interact. She is currently working on her first book, a study of how economic practices and discourses become routine ways of thinking about and acting on the future in contemporary Greece. She is also developing two new projects, focusing on the social life of economic statistics and on student debt.
