Too often, especially in the United States today, religion is seen as the enemy of socio-political progress and change. But even a cursory glance at U.S. history — the Underground Railroad, the Civil Rights Movement, the Sanctuary Movement — attests to the role religion and religious individuals have played in resistance movements. This panel seeks papers that consider the influence of religion on political activism and protest movements — and not only in America, but globally.

I am editing the collection "Doing Vegan Studies," which is under contract for publication in the “Cultural Ecologies of Food in the 21st Century” series published by the University of Nevada Press and slated for publication in 2018. I have a great set of contributors and essays, but due to a contributor being unable to complete an essay, I’ve lost a valuable contribution on veganism and race. I am hoping to solicit an essay that addresses this topic in a compelling and original way. Potential topics include – but are not limited to:
Veganism as perceived white identity category
Problematic comparisons between human slavery and the enslavement of animals
Veganism and Black Lives Matter
Veganism as postcolonial strategy
