Professor Lindsay Naylor Brings Food and Geography Together

Lindsay Naylor Fieldwork

This week on Campus Voices, we spoke with professor Lindsay Naylor from the University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment. As a self-described food geographer, Naylor studies how capitalism impacts power structures in the food and agricultural world. She uses her research to encourage equity in unequal institutions.

We talked to Naylor about the burdens placed on the most vulnerable people in the food production chain, her research on food sovereignty in Spain and Cuba, and her studies on Fair Trade coffee.
