Vegetarianism and Veganism: readings, videos, podcasts, syllabi

Dear All,

I've created a new introductory course for undergraduates at the University of Toronto called Vegetarianism: Ethics, Health, and the Environment. I'm a U.S. historian and historian of science, which will influence what I plan to cover/include to some extent.  But I'm also eager to move beyond, even far beyond my comfort zone to make this course rich and exciting for my students (and for me!).  

The weekly topics include:

veganism

human health (individual, workers, communities, and public health)

animal welfare and rights

environmental issues
