Greetings! I am soliciting chapters for an anthology to be published with an academic press and which will cover a wide range of rhetorical perspectives on veganism as identity, practice, ideology, and discursive ecology. Broad topic areas may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Veg(etari)an techne: crafting veg(etari)an arguments about ethics, health, the environment;
  • Rhetorics of anti-veg(etari)an discourses: points of view from science, medicine, nutrition; popular culture – including social media, TV)
  • Representations of veg(etari)ans and veg(etari)anism in the media
  • Veg(etari)an affect: rhetorical sentiments around meat eating/animal exploitation
  • The sensuous veg(etari)an (e.g., veg(etari)an cookbooks and websites)
  • Veg(etari)an rhetorical intersections: feminism, racism, environmentalism, ableism

Please send inquiries and chapter abstracts not to exceed 300 words to Cristina Hanganu-Bresch, by September 30, 2018. Selected authors will be invited to submit chapters between 5000-7000 words by July 2018 [tentative date].
