The article titled “Going weigen: Animals, climate, and the new vegan movement in Taiwan” will be published in the IJTS after appropriate revision. You can read more about the IJTS Research Article Competition here.

Gina's PhD project examines the development and expansion of veganism and plant-based food advocacy in Taiwan and China. Her research interests pertain to civil society, foodways and technologies, and multispecies justice. She is particularly interested in the intersection of these aspects under sustainability transformations.
