Celebrating Lunar New Year 2024

Celebrating Lunar New Year 2024

The York Centre for Asian Research (YCAR) supported York University's celebration of Lunar New Year Festival on February 14. It co-presented York's annual Chinese Culture Day event, organized by the Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics.

This annual event was a unique opportunity to showcase the rich culture and traditions of Chinese heritage and its contemporary relevance in Canada through a convergence of academic talks, discussions, and cultural performances.

Among the speakers was YCAR Faculty Associate Jack Leong (York University Libraries). His insights, along with those from other YCAR Associates from DLLL, including Gang Pan, Pietro Giordan, Jessica Tsui-yan Li, and Jia Ma, enriched the event’s academic fabric.
