Research
Dr. Han's primary research interests are in political communication, citizen dialogue/deliberation, and civic engagement. She is particularly interested in how people come to know their place in a democracy through political discourse and mediated messages. Dr. Han's earlier work examined how voters have been portrayed in news media and campaign discourse in the U.S. since 1948 and what can be done to promote electoral participation. Her recent work investigates citizen dialogue and deliberation both online and face-to-face and explores ways to foster a more inclusive discursive space. Dr. Han's work can be found in the following journals: Argumentation and Advocacy, American Behavioral Scientist, Journal of Public Deliberation, Communication Research Reports, Electronic Journal Communication, Communication Teacher, Computers in Human Behavior.
