Veganism as an ethics and a practice has a recorded history dating back to Antiquity. Yet, it is only recently that researchers have begun the process of formalising the study of veganism. Scholars who examine this theory and action are usually situated in sociology, history, philosophy, cultural studies or critical animal studies. The centrality and contested nature of place in the actions and discourse of animal rights activists however suggest an inherently spatial praxis. Slaughterhouses are deliberately closed and placed out of the sight; our familiar urban environment is filled with references to eating meat and exploiting animals, although normalised and rendered invisible. On the other hand, activists take to the street to defend animal rights and invite individuals to change their perception on everyday places and practices of animal violence. Animal liberation and veganism therefore embody an inherently spatial praxis – the desire to live without places of violence (White, 2015). As underlined by Harper (2010:5-6), ‘veganism is not just about the abstinence of animal consumption; it is about the ongoing struggle to produce socio-spatial epistemologies of consumption that lead to cultural and spatial change’. While an interest in domination over non-human animals has gained momentum within critical geography circles in the last two decades (Wolch and Emel, 1995; Philo and Wilbert, 2000; Emel et al., 2002, Gillespie and Collards, 2015; White, 2015), the scarcity of available literature highlights the need for geographers to further reflect on vegan activism and practice. As scholars-activists identifying with veganism, we seek to underscore what geographers can contribute to our understanding of critical veganism and vegan praxis. 

We therefore would like to invite contributions addressing themes including but not limited to: 

• Veganism and critical animal geographies
• Vegan, post-colonial and feminist geographies
• Speciesism and imagined geographies
• Total liberation and emancipatory politics
• Veganism as a spatial praxis
• Veganism and positionality
• Vegan movements and activism
• Vegan cultures and subcultures
• Indigenous and Black veganism
• Intersectionality
• Anthroprivilege and anthroparchy
• Veganism and anarchist geographies
• Veganism, capitalism and the animal industrial complex
• Veganism and critical pedagogies
• Veganism and environmentalism
• Vegan futures
