Thursday, October 25, 2012

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - Dr. Sandra Webster, professor of psychology, recently had her research published in The Korea Fulbright Infusion (Volume 5).

"Pursuing Han" discusses two Korean emotions and how those emotions are expressed through art. "Han" is a painful experience not expressed outwardly through facial expressions or through conversation; but through poetry, songs, drama and visual arts. Webster also connects "jeong," a strong feeling of "we"-ness, to the resolution of  "han" and discusses the expression of that emotion through the arts.
