“Viewing the Moon” through Chinese Poetry – How the Moon Connects Us Across Time and Space

This workshop will provide a brief introduction to classical Chinese poetry. On the occasion of the Chinese Mid-Autumn Moon Festival, the focus will be on the significance of the moon and how Chinese poets write about viewing the moon for their time and for ours. Led by Chiu-Mi Lai, Ph.D., Professor of Instruction, Asian Studies, UT Austin.

Following the workshop, weather permitting, a night viewing of the moon will be held on the UT campus on the east side of the Main Clock Tower.
