Westminster Psychology Professor Chosen as McCandless Scholar

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.  --  Dr. Sandra Webster, chair and professor of psychology at Westminster College, has been named McCandless Scholar for the 2004-2005 academic year.

  The award, designed to honor the memory of Dr. J. Bardarah McCandless and to encourage scholarly activity on Westminster's campus, is given to one full-time tenure track faculty member each year.  The McCandless Scholar receives eight credit hours of reassigned time and monetary support for research and scholarship expenses.

Webster will use the time and money provided by the McCandless Award to continue her research on the concept of Korean emotion Han, which is a negative emotional state caused by something outside the individual's direct control, as a function of gender and generation.

Her project, "Turning Adversity into Character: Further Explorations of the Korean Emotion Han and its Possible Counterparts in Other Cultures," will explore if the concepts of Han can be generalized into other nations or culture groups.

Webster earned her undergraduate, master's and Ph.D. from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale.  For more information, contact Webster at (724) 946-7238 or e-mail
