Dr Amanda Shaw

Research Fellow - WiSE Centre
Amanda’s research concerns intersecting inequalities in the realms of food and agriculture, trade and international development. Her work engages feminist and anti-imperialist perspectives on political economy and geography to analyse (1) discourses and practices of ‘sustainable agriculture’ in the context of Hawaiʻi and (2) international programmes on agriculture trade and development. Amanda is interested in how economic and social justice projects narrate and configure relations of gender, race, class and sexuality. Research interests include: transnational feminism and feminist theorising; settler colonialism and racial capitalism; queer theorising and theories of affect; organising, agency and collective action. Amanda’s professional pathway has combined research with organising/advocacy as well as policy-oriented work.
