‘With their skins on them, and … their souls in them’: Towards a Vegan Theory

An Interdisciplinary Humanities Conference
31st May 2016 – University of Oxford
Building on the increasing prominence of the ‘animal turn’ in the humanities in the last decade, and the recent publication of Laura Wright’s The Vegan Studies Project: Food, Animals, and Gender in an Age of Terror (University of Georgia Press, 2015), this conference will seek to ask what kind of place veganism and/or ‘the vegan’ should occupy in our theorizations of human-animal relations, animal studies, and the humanities in general.
