All across Asia, the arrival of spring is celebrated, and for Chinese, Korean, and various Southeast Asian communities, it is marked with the beginning of the new year on the lunar calendar. 

Join the Center for Asian and Pacific Studies and International Programs as they host their annual Chinese-Korean-Japanese-Southeast Asian “Lunar New Year Celebration” webinar on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2023, from 7 to 8 p.m. (Central Standard Time)

“Our Lunar New Year Celebration webinar has become a fun-filled and exciting annual event that celebrates the ageless tradition to toast togetherness and to connect meaningfully as we look forward to a happy year ahead,” said Cynthia Chou, professor of anthropology, C. Maxwell and Elizabeth M. Stanley Family Chair of Asian Studies, and director of the Center for Asian and Pacific Studies. 

This webinar will bring together past and present students, faculty members, and friends of the University of Iowa from all over the world to celebrate this special day. 

Enjoy video messages from alumni and students, and panel discussions with faculty members describing what Lunar New Year/Spring Festival means to them.
