I have been approached by Routledge Press to edit a Handbook on Vegan Studies for the press’s Environment and Sustainability division. Handbooks are typically 30-35 chapters, with each chapter being roughly 6000 words. They aim to provide a cutting edge, comprehensive assessment of the field and will be an essential reference title and benchmark publication for the subject. 

I am seeking proposals for chapters for the handbook that reflect knowledge of the field and that build on extant work in the discipline. Such proposals might include but are not limited to 

Vegan Studies . . . 


Key figures 

Relationship to animal studies

And critical race studies

And gender studies/feminism

And identity/intersectionality

And politics

Please submit abstract proposals of 250-300 words and a CV to Laura Wright @ lwright@email.wcu.eduby May 31.
