This episode of Knowing Animals features an interview with Professor Laura Wright. Laura is a Professor of English at Western Carolina University. She has authored research monographs of the work of J. M. Coetzee and on postcolonial studies, but is particularly well known in the animal studies world for championing “vegan studies”. Her book The Vegan Studies Project: Food, Animals, and Gender in the Age of Terror was published in 2015 by the University of Georgia Press, and her edited collection Through A Vegan Studies Lens: Textual Ethics and Lived Activism was published in 2019 by the University of Nevada Press. In this episode, we discuss “Framing vegan studies: Vegetarianism, veganism, animal studies, ecofeminism”, which is the first chapter of The Routledge Handbook of Vegan Studies. The handbook, which Laura edited, was published earlier in 2021.

This episode of Knowing Animals is brought to you by the Australasian Animal Studies Association and the Animal Publics book series at Sydney University Press.
