Emily Yeh's NSF CAREER project on environmentalism in China and Tibet is featured as a "research story" on CU's ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) funding site, Yeh will apply $490,000 in ARRA funding to a research project that will focus on the emergence of environmentalism in China and Tibet. Yeh seeks to understand the ways environmental ideas travel around the globe, and how people adopt and articulate them in particular times and places. The project, which will include learning and research opportunities for CU undergraduate and graduate students, will result in an ethnographic film about grassroots environmentalism in Tibet.
