I am very pleased to announce that my first monograph will be published with Routledge in 2021. The research draws on the archival, interview, and ethnographic research that I undertook for my PhD. I spent many days writing and rewriting this book during 2020, and I am very thankful to my friends and colleagues for their support, as well as all the wonderful people I met through my research. I am thrilled that this will be out in the world soon. You can pre-order a copy for yourself, your library, or institution, which will ship after 13th August 2021 from the Routledge webpage: Veganism, Archives, and Animals: Geographies of a Multispecies World.
The book explores the growing significance of veganism. It brings together important theoretical and empirical insights to offer a historical and contemporary analysis of veganism and our future co-existence with other animals.
Bringing together key concepts from geography, critical animal studies and feminist theory this book critically addresses veganism as both a subject of study and a spatial approach to the self, society, and everyday life. The book draws upon empirical research through archival research, interviews with vegans in Britain, and a multispecies ethnography with chickens. It argues that the field of ‘beyond-human geographies’ needs to more seriously take into account veganism as a rising socio-political force and in academic theory. This book provides a unique and timely contribution to debates within animal studies and more-than-human geographies, providing novel insights into the complexities of caring beyond the human.
This book will appeal to students and scholars interested in geography, sociology, animal studies, food studies and consumption, and those researching veganism.
