  • WHERE: DeVos Campus, Sneden Hall, Room 108
  • WHO: Dr. Lindsay Naylor, Assistant Professor of Geography at the University of Delaware

A feminist political geographer, Lindsay Naylor is an assistant professor in the University of Delaware’s Department of Geography. She also holds a joint appointment with the Department of Women and Gender Studies and serves as an affiliate faculty member in Latin American and Iberian Studies.

Using food and agricultural production as a lens to explore human-environment interactions and geopolitical spaces, Dr. Naylor has examined a number of issues, such as GMOs in food sovereignty, alternative food networks, consumer motivations for purchasing fair trade coffee, urban agriculture, and indigenous rights in southern Mexico. Her extensive fieldwork in Chiapas has provided a foundation for her book, Fair Trade Rebels: Coffee Production and Struggles for Autonomy in Chiapas, which will be published by the University of Minnesota Press later this year. Dr. Naylor is one of 45 distinguished geographers listed as part of the Visiting Geographical Scientist program funded by the International Geographical Honor Society and administered by the American Association of Geographers.
