Professor JUNG Hyang Jin
Jung Hyang Jin takes interrelationship between culture and psyche as her main theoretical interest, focusing on such topical areas as emotion and self, socialization of personhood, cultural psychodynamics, education, performance, and late modernity. She has conducted fieldwork in the United States and South Korea, and “culture-at-a-distance” study on North Korea. Her ongoing research projects are: self and authenticity in a postmodern American community; the psychocultural foundation of the North Korean statehood and society; the socialization of emotion and person in South Korean education.
