Transfigurations of Veganism

Guest editors: Marzena Kubisz and Agata Sitko 

The conception of a human diet that excludes the consumption of animal products - be it vegan or vegetarian ones - has been developed over the centuries and has evolved to achieve unprecedented popularity in recent years. This revival is accompanied by debates, disputes, analyses, interpretations and polemics, which indicate that a meatless diet – and thus animal rights, the relationship between the meat industry and the natural environment, and finally the impact of the meat-based diet on human health – constitutes nowadays one of those socio-political and cultural issues in which many contemporary problems are visible as if through a converging lens.

The Editors invite researchers who wish to focus on the proposed topics from the perspective of cultural, literary, philosophical, sociological and historical studies. The proposed subjects include but are not limited to

historical evolutions of vegan/vegetarian discourse
veganism/vegetarianism and animal welfare
vegan material culture
relations between veganism and fashion
veganism in world cultures
veganism movements
historical evolution of attitudes (from a rebel to celebrity)
veganism and ecological movements
the relationship between veganism and politics
the psychological dimension of a meatless diet
veganism in art and literature 

Deadline for submitting articles for the 2024 issue: January 31, 2023.
