The Vegan Studies Project: Food, Animals, and Gender in the Age of Terro

Examines the social and cultural discourses shaping our perceptions of veganism as an identity category and social practice, including mainstream discourse regarding the relationship, or lack thereof, between animal rights and veganism. While focusing on the depiction of the vegan body in cultural representations, this work examines critical animal studies, human-animal studies, posthumanism, and ecofeminism as theoretical frameworks that inform vegan studies and positions these discussions in the context of post-9/11 anxieties over American strength and virility.
