Reproducing Speciesism

A content analysis of Australian media representations of veganism

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paper

Abstract

This paper contributes new research on representations of veganism in the Australian print media by adapting an approach used in a 2007 study of the issue in the United Kingdom (Cole & Morgan 2011). It conveys preliminary quantitative and qualitative data from a content analysis of how the practicalities and ethical basis of veganism' as an anti-speciesist social practice were portrayed in Australian media in 2007 and 2012. Consistent with the UK study, the results indicate these media outlets are reproducing largely negative discourses about veganism, which it is argued are out of step with the lived reality of practitioners and the related scholarship.
