Call for Papers: 2021 Korea Research Collaboratory: Emotions — Attachment and connection in Korea’s past and present (Korea Research Centre at UWA).
Terms such as han (한), jeong (정) and perceived practices such as injeong juui (인정주의), yeon-go juui (연고주의) and inmaek (인맥) have been claimed (by some) as distinctly Korean experiences of attachment and connection that have created a dynamic sense of self that is relational, interdependent, and interconnected. Most often these terms have been studied in psychological, therapeutic, pastoral and sociological contexts. With this collaboratory, we wish to broaden the analysis of such concepts and their lived experiences to analysis within the arts, literature, media, historical and contemporary social practice, by focussing particularly on their expressive forms.
