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

This year, join the Center for Asian and Pacific Studies and International Programs as they host a joint Chinese-Korean-Japanese-Southeast Asian “Lunar New Year Celebration” webinar on Thursday, February 3, 2022, from 7:00-8:00 p.m. (Central Standard Time).

The webinar hopes to 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 short cooking demonstrations, video messages from alumni and students, and panel discussions with faculty members describing what Lunar New Year/Spring Festival means to them.

Additional collaborators include the UI Department of Asian and Slavic Languages and Literatures, the Iowa City Area Chinese Association, and Kennedy High School, Cedar Rapids
