About Eden Kinkaid
My research interests are wide-ranging. For the last five years, I have been conducting fieldwork in north India on issues of agrarian change, development, organic farming, and environmental governance. This work draws on political ecology, postcolonial thought, and science and technology studies. Alongside my dissertation research, I engage various debates in socio-spatial theory and philosophies of space and the subject. This work issues from a feminist/queer perspective and is particularly focused on gender, sexuality, and embodiment. Additionally, I am increasingly engaged in creative geographies, as a practioner, curator, and scholar, and inspired the ability of creative works to contribute to geographic thought and feminist praxis.
