I am an anti-racist, decolonial, feminist scholar, using food and agricultural production as a lens to explore human-environment interactions and geopolitical spaces. I currently conduct research and teach at the University of Delaware in the Department of Geography & Spatial Sciences (link). I hold a joint appointment with the Department of Women & Gender Studies and am affiliate faculty in Latin American & Iberian Studies. I co-direct the Embodiment Lab with my colleagues Paul Jackson and Julie Klinger.

Naylor – Curriculum Vitae 2020 (Updated 06.2020)

As a political geographer, I am primarily interested in investigating the multi-sited ‘geo’ of geopolitics and examining how it is written across space, place, and bodies. I draw from frameworks in critical and feminist geopolitics, political ecology, decolonial philosophy, and diverse economies to ground action-oriented research.

Specific topics that I focus on include:

  • food justice
  • food sovereignty
  • home gardens
  • urban food forests
  • alternative agri-food systems
  • agroecological systems
  • fair trade
  • the body
  • breastfeeding, human milk expression, and donor human milk
  • material relations
  • resistance
  • solidarity
  • autonomy
  • diverse and community economies

My regional focus is primarily Latin America, however, I also conduct research in the U.S. Mid-Atlantic and have previously worked in the Caribbean, Spain and the U.S. Pacific Northwest.
