Social Movements, Memory Studies
Juhee Park is a first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Sociology and a graduate teaching assistant in the Department of Communication. She received her master’s degree in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a paper titled “Disgruntled but Unorganized: An Analysis of How Willing Non-Protesters Differ from Actual Protesters and Unwilling Non-Protesters.”
She is interested in various areas within social movement research. Her main interest is how the memories of some movements affect future movements, particularly those movements which shaped the public’s understanding of the nation. She has also recently developed an interest in feminist activism within a subculture community.
Before coming to GMU, she taught English in K-12 schools and private language institutes in South Korea for about two decades. She served for two years as a TA for Introduction to Sociology at UW-Milwaukee, and she is leading lab instruction for three sections of COMM 101 during the 2022-2023 school year.
