I just saw an interesting call for papers on queer readings of vegan texts. Would anyone have recs for vegan texts -- books, films, anything, really, that could be analysed as a text? I've started looking around but am getting stalled by all the results for recipe books.

ETA: There's an awesome issue of Critical Animal Studies for download here, with an entire article on the topic of queer theory and veganism. Abstract below the cut.

Page 51: "What does it mean for a person to declare her or his veganism to the world? How does the transition from one diet to another impact one’s sense of self? Veganism challenges the foundational character of how we “act out” our selves—not least of all in the context of sexuality and gender. In my paper, I am thus interested in the potential of veganism to disrupt the “natural” bond between gender formations and the consumption of animal products, as this relates to social and cultural genealogies. Consequently, I will explore a queer form of veganism that affirms the radical impact of what Sara Ahmed calls “shared deviation.”

Not at all - but would you share examples? Intriguing!

This is when I get totally excited about our field, when we come across these new trends and all the cool people working on them, and all the mind-blowing texts coming out of them.

Totally. I found a project on espionage as cultural artefact -- very cool!

When I first glanced at this post, I thought you were asking people to text you about lesbian tomatoes.

I haven't been awake very long.

Are you vegan? I just realized today that I've been vegetarian for more than half my life - huzzah!

This is obviously not something you should use, but halfway through the so-bad-it's-enjoyable movie Troll 2 you find out that the bad guys are in a vegan cult.

Other than that, I got nothing.

That's awesome! My sis and I have given up meat too.

You know, that actually sounds pretty intriguing. It's kind of like villainising stuff you don't understand, right? Like, I've lost count of how many times people make fun of vegetarians, all the arguments about the food chain, ad nauseam.
