Kim Nguyen is a doctoral student at City University of New York in the Critical Social and Personality Psychology program and a research associate at sexgenlab.org. She currently teaches at Pratt Institute and Hunter College. Kim graduated from the Human Development and Social Intervention Master’s program at New York University (NYU) and her research interests are in gender studies (particularly masculinity), child development within sociohistorical and cultural contexts, social justice with a critical lens, political war trauma, and decolonizing healing practices.
Kim is interested in the different ways in which social injustice and power dynamics dehumanize and disrupt our ability to connect with one another (and ourselves) and therefore, heal from war-related trauma. Kim was also the project manager for the Project for the Advancement of Our Common Humanity, a think-and-do tank based at NYU and the education program coordinator for the Morton Deutsch International Center for Cooperation and Conflict Resolution at Teachers College Columbia University.
