The North American Society of Sociology of Sport (NASSS) has recognized professor Annelies Knoppers as a member of the inaugural class of the NASSS Research Fellows.
The NASSS Research Fellow designation is intended to serve three purposes. First, it acknowledges the contributions of leading scholars within the North American Society for the Sociology of Sport. Second, the Award is intended to recognize Fellows’ standing within their chosen academic discipline, particularly to confirm to home academic institutions each Fellow’s achievements within the field. Third, the Award is meant to encourage high standards of research and other forms of scholarship among NASSS’s members.
Annelies Knoppers received the Award during the recent NASSS conference in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
