Clare Kim

Broadly interested in the history of knowledge, Clare Kimís research focuses on the history of twentieth and twenty-first century mathematical sciences. She investigates how mathematical thought and practice have been produced, represented, and understood within mathematics and across other cultural domains. Her dissertation examines the intersections between modernism, mathematics, politics and the arts in the interwar United States. Other research interests include critical histories of rationality and information aesthetics; relationships between racial politics and scientific exchange in the context of American, Asian American, and East Asian cultures; and historical narratives of STS and history of science scholarship.

Clare received her undergraduate degree in history from Brown University with a focus in the history of science and mathematics. She wrote an honors thesis on pedagogy and postwar institutional development of applied mathematics in the United States.
