2월9일 평창동계올림픽을 맞아 제 박사 동료들과 함께 “올림픽 토크쇼”를 준비했습니다. 비록 아직 전문가의 타이틀을 내세울 수준도 각자의 연구분야도 아니지만, 저희가 배운 지식들을 대중과 나누고 저희 또한 한단계 더 성장하기 위해 준비했습니다. 관심있으신분들의 많은 참여 부탁드리겠습니다^^
As the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games approaches, my colleagues and I have prepared the “Olympic Talk Show”. Even though we are still students in doctoral studies, and the Olympic Games may not be our direct research area, we would like to take this time to develop our selves through sharing our knowledge and experiences.
If you are interested in learning about the Olympic Games in general and its politics, please do not hesitate to RSVP.

1월26일 올림픽 토크쇼를 빛내줄 3명의 발표자 분들을 소개합니다!
I am pleased to introduce our three presenters for January 26th The Olympic Talk Show!
– Dongkyu Na
Dongkyu Na, PhD candidate at the University of Ottawa in Human Kinetics. His research area is sport and politics and sport for international development, specifically focusing on Korean sport volunteer programs in developing countries. In this event, Olympic Talk Show, he will broadly touch three issues in the 2018 Peyongchang Winter Olympic Games: 1. History of the Winter Olympic Games in Korea, 2. Socio-economic and political issues, 3. Post-Peyongchang 2018. He also would like to hear and discuss this issues with participants.
– Phillip Chipman
Phillip Chipman, PhD student at the University of Ottawa in Human Kinetics with a specialization in Sport History. His research focuses on strength and bodybuilding in Quebec with its relation to feelings of nationalism among French Canadians. His topic will discuss the establishment of the modern Olympics in 1896 while emphasizing on the idea that these so called ‘Games’ were never actually, what we refer to as ‘Games’. On many occasions the Olympics were used as a platform to promote political ideals, a place where racism and discrimination was prevalent, and where ‘winning at all cost’ quickly replaced Coubertin’s idea that simply competing was good enough.
– Humphrey Nartey
Humphrey Nartey, Ph.D. candidate at the University of Ottawa in the Human Kinetics Department. His concentration is on Socio-cultural Studies with a specialization in the Sociology of Sport. Being a former university varsity athlete, he is very keen on understanding the processes involved with athletes transitioning out of sport. With an emphasis on past literature, he will address the topic of Olympic athletes transitioning out of sport, by examining the experiences of these athletes before, during and after their Olympic participation.
