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:
human health (individual, workers, communities, and public health)
animal welfare and rights
gender and culture
race and culture
religion and culture
Canada, Toronto, and the Univeristy of Toronto
commerce and organized opposition
Does anybody teach or know of another university course - anywhere in the world - on vegetarianism (or veganism) and society?
If so, I'd love to see a syllabus.
I'd also greatly appreciated suggestions for readings, videos, and/or podcasts about any of the topics listed above.
