[KS] historicizing "han"

One thing to check would be the annual program listings for the AAS meetings.  In the later 1970's and then on into the 1980's there were many papers presented on the subject.  It's an indirect measure but might be useful.

 I noticed in one of the  collections of Sowol's poems in the back of the book was a listing of articles about the poet and his work.  There too Han entered as a subject in the 1970's.  One article by Midang on the subject prior to that.

I can track  more specifics when I get back from NY.
