Lindsay Naylor

Assistant Professor


PhD, University of Oregon, Department of Geography - 2014

MA, American University, School of International Service - 2004

BA, Western Washington University, Department of Political Science - 2001


I am trained as a scholar of international economic development and human geography.  In my research I use food and agricultural production as a lens to examine power relations and resistance as they relate to capitalist-driven economic development. My research is motivated by a desire to understand the geopolitics of food systems—from the local to the global—and to produce research relevant to improving the equity and sustainability of such systems. I conduct research in both peripheral and core economic areas. For more information please see my personal website.
