Animals and Crime at the American Society of Criminology 2005 - 2017
With a few exceptions among green and critical criminologists, criminology has not focused on violence against non-human animals. While there are several notable publications, and a few conference presentations each year, the theoretical foundation is limited and the boundaries of criminological study regarding animals are poorly defined.
In preparation for the 2017 Annual Meetings of the American Society of Criminology, the final programs for ASC conferences from 2005 through 2017 were searched for key terms related to animals, food, and farms. Environmental crime is also included, primarily related to advocacy on behalf of animals and the environment.

I was unable to attend your presentation, but I am really interested in the topic. I presented research at the 2016 ASC conference about activism related to police shootings of canines in my area. I would like to focus on vegan criminology a lot more.
