Kate D Derickson
Kate's work engages political economy, critical race theory and feminist epistemology to explore the politics of knowledge production and the relationship between scholarly knowledge and emancipatory social change. She has published widely on the practice of engaged scholarship, race and neoliberalism, and urban theory informed in large part by her ongoing collaborations with communities of color in the American South and working class communities in the UK. Her work has appeared in a range of journals, including Society & Space, The Annals of the American Association of Geographers, Progress in Human Geography, and Urban Studies. She is an editor at Society and Space, and the Radical Geography series at Pluto Press. Kate is part of the inaugural cohort of Associates at the U of MN's Institute on the Environment and a 2015 - 2017 McKnight Land-Grant Professor.
