Vegan Studies Network Online Lecture Series

The Vegan Studies Network is an interdisciplinary and international network of academics organized by Emelia Quinn and Silvia Panizza

The vegan studies network gathers the best and most innovative academics working on topics related to veganism from a wide variety of subject areas. The aim is to cover all the main aspects of what veganism involves.  These vary from its political and sociological aspect to its philosophical underpinnings, from economics to environmental factors, and more, on both a local and a global scale. In this way, the network will enable the development of a holistic vision on the question of veganism. For more information about the network see .
