Description

This event will be a virtual talk via Zoom. Click here at the event time for access.

Jessica Holmes taught the first ever Vegan Studies course at UW this fall. Her talk "Vegan Studies: Teaching Equity, Justice and Sustainability through the Lens of Veganism" will discuss the emerging academic field of Vegan Studies–what is it, how might we situate it within current models of scholarship and activism, and how does it relate to issues of sustainability, ecofeminism and social justice? How might veganism serve as a potential basis for radical social resilience and coexistence on a planet in crisis?
This is part of the Sustainability Stories @ UW series, highlighting sustainability efforts happening across the University of Washington.

This series is part of the University of Washington's recognition of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day in 2020.
