This week, I am pleased to present my interview with the vegan anarchist geographer Richard White, PhD, Reader in Human Geography at Sheffield Hallam University in the UK. Richard has co-edited several books, including Vegan Geographies: Spaces Beyond Violence, Ethics Beyond Speciesism (published in 2022) and Anarchism and Animal Liberation (published in 2015). He was the editor of the Journal for Critical Animal Studies from 2009 to 2012, and he has written many book chapters and academic journal articles on topics related to geography, anarchism, and veganism. Richard is also a veganic gardener and has been a vegan for about two decades. In this interview, Richard shares his story of becoming vegan and getting involved in Critical Animal Studies, and he speaks about the significance of understanding the connections between spatial and social justice. We discuss the concept of prefigurative praxis as it applies to veganism, anti-capitalist and anarchist approaches to veganism, and the limitations of approaching veganism as a diet or consumer lifestyle. Richard also tells me about his experiences with veganic gardening and teaching about veganism and animal rights issues.
