Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course examines sociopolitical and cultural meanings of veganism in the twenty-first century. Discussing some of the most recent theories on veganism, we will investigate how veganism challenges patriarchy and capitalism, transforming such notions as gender, body, and identity. Through the prism of bioethics, ecofeminism, posthumanism, animal rights, and environmentalism, we will explore the human-animal relationship and generally what it means to be “human.” We will examine the ways in which cinema responds to veganism through its ambiguous portrayals of the meat-eating practice. The films that we will analyze in this course – from the documentary Food, Inc. to the Netflix original movie Okja – are largely influenced by the current debates on production and consumption, but they also shape our culture, foregrounding the role of veganism in today's world.
