Kevin Kim
Kevin Y. Kim is a native New Yorker and historian on the faculty of the University of Washington Bothell in the American, Ethnic, and Global Studies departments of the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences. He received his B.A. from Columbia University and Ph.D. in History from Stanford University.

He is working on a book tentatively titled, Worlds Unseen: Henry Wallace, Herbert Hoover, and the Making of Cold War America. This book, which was a finalist for the Allan Nevins Dissertation Prize from the Society of American Historians, provides a new political and intellectual history of the Cold War from the perspective of its most prominent U.S. dissenters and their larger political movements: New Deal liberal and Progressive Party leader Henry Wallace and former U.S. president and Republican Party elder statesman Herbert Hoover. In support of his work, Kim has received fellowships from the American Historical Association, Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, John W. Kluge Center, NYU’s Center for the United States and the Cold War, Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations, and other organizations. He has published articles in Pacific Historical Review, Diplomatic History, and a state-of-the-field volume on Korean American studies from Brill Publishers. He also has written on history, culture, and public and international affairs for The Nation, The Progressive, The Village Voice, Far Eastern Economic Review, South China Morning Post, and other popular publications.
