Come join us as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the UBC Department of Asian Studies! Since our founding in 1961 the Department has been at the forefront of teaching and research about Asia in North America. Over the years our department has expanded to offer many different Asian culture, literature and history classes as well as adding on several new languages to our already extensive list.
This night is an opportunity to look back and see how much this department has developed, as well as to connect with alumni, staff and faculty, and current students. Come enjoy light snacks and champagne at the reception, followed by a delicious dinner buffet with wine, and a performance by the UBC Persian Music Ensemble to celebrate the launch of the Department’s new Persian Language and Iranian Studies Initiative.
Thank you for being a part of our 50 - year journey, we would be delighted if you could join us to help celebrate our first 50 years.
