In this very special live episode of Knowing Animals, recorded as part of The Vegan Society's On the Pulse webinar series, we speak to Dr Richard White. Richard is a Reader in Human Geography at Sheffield Hallam University in the UK. He is interested in anarchism, activism, critical animal studies, and vegan geographies. He is the co-editor of five books, including the 2015 collection Anarchism and Animal Liberation. We talk about his paper ‘Re-asserting the Radical Promise of Veganism through Vegan-Anarchist Geographies’, which was published in the 2022 Lantern Publishing book Vegan Geographies: Spaces Beyond Violence, Ethics Beyond Speciesism, which was co-edited by Paul Hodge, Andrew McGregor, Simon Springer, Ophélie Véron, and Richard himself.
