Sarah Davenport

Research Interests Food Sovereignty, Environmental justice, Race and ethnicity, Urban development, Florida and Caribbean Basin


Sarah is an agroecologist and activist scholar from Southwest Florida, broadly interested in how historically specific sets of social, ecological, political, and economic relationships shape contemporary socioenvironmental contexts in Florida and the Caribbean Basin region. More specifically, Sarah examines how Black, Indigenous, and people of color respond to food and environmental injustices in Central Florida by developing multi-racial, multi-cultural solidarities through the food sovereignty movement. By using engaged, collaborative, and public approaches as well as her skills in agroecology, Sarah’s ethnographic work directly address food and environmental injustice in Florida.
