Courses: Vegan Criminology

Vegan Criminology Classroom

Vegan criminology focuses on animal rights and the rights of those attempting to protect animals. Topics of interest include environmental threats, exploiting animals in entertainment, sport, and experimentation, the role of patriarchy, the legal status of animals, and the widespread acceptance of treating animals as food.

This site includes two classrooms, one more "open" than the other. The "Vegan Criminology - Open Access" course is work in progress, with more questions than answers. Much of the course is in outline form, adopting the following principles:

  • DIY
  • Teaching Without Borders
  • Open - Not all links are durable.

The "Vegan Criminology - Closed Access" course is much more focused. While many of the same topics are covered, this course is designed for a more scholarly environment. Visitors with the opportunity to integrate topics related to Animals in Criminology in high school or university classes are welcome to borrow liberally, although library access will be required to view many of the closed access journal articles included in the syllabus. This course is also presented in outline form, adopting the following principles:

  • Design as a typical 15-week course.
  • Rely on scholarly research, open-access when possible.
  • Encourage scholars to adopt and refine.
