Keavy McFadden is an urban geographer with specializations in urban development and infrastructure, education, social movements, and community-based research. While completing her PhD at University of Minnesota, Keavy studied the intersection between education and urban politics in Chicago. Politically engaged research is central to her ongoing research agenda, and the theoretical insights of her research are grounded in collaborative research engagements with community-based organizations. Keavy’s commitments to politically engaged research are deeply linked to her pedagogical practice, and she strives to integrate teaching and research. Keavy’s latest research project explores the entanglements between social reproduction and environmental justice.

Keavy’s research has been supported by fellowships and grants from the National Science Foundation, the Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change at University of Minnesota, and the Graduate School of the University of Minnesota. She is also the co-founder and co-editor of AGITATE! Journal, an online, open-access platform that explores the possibilities and challenges of interweaving scholarship, activism, and artistry in search of justice.
