Robert Kim - 10. 14. 16
Robert is a senior in Adams House from Rye, New York. His primary interests within the English Department are 20th-century American literature and creative writing. Outside of the English department, he’s been a member of the Harvard Krokodiloes, Harvard’s oldest a capella singing group, for the past two years, and has spent the past two summers on the road with the Kroks, traveling to places such as Taipei, Seoul, Shanghai, Tokyo, Macau, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Melbourne, Kisii, Istanbul, Sayn, Tuscany, and Paris. This year he’s a member of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals and plays guitar and cello in the Hasty Pudding Band. In addition to HPT and the Kroks, Robert works at Borrow Direct and Interlibrary Loan at Widener Library, works on various HRDC theater productions, plays guitar and writes songs, listens to the Radiohead and Beatles discographies religiously, reads, and writes a lot of fiction. These days he’s most interested in Don Delillo and Dostoevsky. His favorite place on campus is the west wing of the second floor of the Widener Stacks, and this is where he finds peace and creative bliss. He loves to talk about books, about writers, about music, about art and aesthetics in general, and would love to meet anyone interested in concentrating in English, or in simply having a creative and stimulating chat!
