[Obituary] Professor SHYNNE Gwanghyun of the SNU Department of English Language and Literature passed away on the morning of July 24, at the mere age of 50. Shynne was diagnosed with gastric cancer last February. His classes were one of the must-take courses for students who major in English, his most famous lecture being ‘Literature and Psychic Analysis.’ A specialist on medieval literature, Shynne received the SNU Education Award in 2009 and was also the first professor to serve as a BESETOHA Exchange Professor at Peking University. Along with his hard work as a scholar, his efforts to build a rapport with students as a true mentor made many students remember him as"SNU's Mr. Keating".
