Beth E. Notar primarily conducts research in Yunnan, China and Yangon, Myanmar on issues of mobility. Her first book, Displacing Desire: Travel and Popular Culture in China, was designated by the American Library Association as one of the “most significant publications for undergraduates.” As part of the Luce Faculty Initiative on Asia and the Environment, she loves to take students on summer study abroad programs to China and Southeast Asia. Given her research interests in the rise of global automobility, and a Mellon foundation pedagogy grant, she has developed a new course: “Mobility & Sustainability.”
