On Tuesday, October 6th, ANKHR hosted an informal tea with Professor Terry Park, a visiting lecturer of Asian American Studies. During this event, Professor Park shared entertaining stories and surprising insights from his 2007 trip to North Korea with the members of ANKHR and other Wellesley students.
ANKHR would like to thank Professor Park for participating in this event and for sharing his stories with us. ANKHR will continue to work with Professor Park throughout the year on various projects including an upcoming panel on “Bringing women to the forefront of discussions surrounding Korean peninsular division, militarization, and peacemaking”.

Movie Screening of Dumangang and Discussion with Professor Sun-hee Lee
On Thursday, October 17th, 2013, ANKHR hosted a movie screening of Dumangang, a film directed by Zhang Lu, an acclaimed Korean-Chinese director, and Korean-French co-produced. The movie depicted the tragic and grim reality of life on the DPRK-China border, along the Tumen (or Duman in Korean) River. The film dealt with many grave topics, alluding to violence, rape, and poverty, while also addressed the psychological toll and fear of arrest and deportation, and how one can, under those circumstances, rationally conclude that it is in his best interest to report on a relative, or a neighbor. Following the screening, a discussion was led by Professor Sun-Hee Lee addressing both the film and human rights in North Korea.
Thank you for those who made it–we hope to see more of you at our events.
