Eunchong Cho

I am a Sociology Ph.D. student at the University of California, San Diego, specializing in social movements, youth activism, political mobilization, neoliberalism, political sociology, human rights, comparative historical sociology, and qualitative methods.
In my research, I employ a political, cultural, and historical approach to explore how collective actors become politically mobilized, investigating their dynamics within the broader context of political, economic, and historical structures. My current dissertation project explores the rise and fall of "youth" in political prominence, shaping the foundation for political identity and mobilization in the post-2010s era.

I am honored to have been selected as a UCSD Human Rights Fellow from UC Berkeley Human Rights Center. Additionally, I have established Media Noon and Media Activism School, non-profit media organizations based in South Korea, with a primary focus on creating social content and delivering training programs for media activists and journalists.
