Minseok Ahn and Public Sociology of Sport
Lim, Seungyup; Love, Adam; Lim, Hyun-Chin
Quest, v67 n1 p30-43 2015
This article presents a biographical overview of Minseok Ahn's career, specifically highlighting his role as a public sport sociologist. Notably, Ahn has spent time as a student activist, worked as a physical education teacher, served as a scholar with a university appointment, and held office in the South Korean National Assembly. Throughout his career, he has sought engagement with multiple publics in multiple ways to pursue reform in sport and physical education. An examination of Ahn's career can offer insights regarding the processes and challenges involved in pursuing public sociology and provide a cross-national perspective that helps us consider the possibilities that exist for scholars to seek progressive change in sport through public engagement.
