Chapter 12 Advancing trans-species social and spatial justice through critical animal geographies
Restricted access

The chapter appeals for “critical” animal geographies - particularly those rooted in anarchist praxis and a total liberation ethic – to inspire new ways of imagining and advancing trans-species social and spatial justice. The chapter begins by explaining what “critical” signifies across both animal studies and animal geographies and explores the mutually supportive relationships that exist (and might yet exist) across these two approaches. Following this a case is made as to why embracing (vegan) anarchist geographies and a total liberation ethic are particularly timely and important. It is argued that not only do they encourage deeper understanding of the contemporary geographies of trans-species injustices but can be drawn on to identify points of intervention with which to inspire future emancipatory research agendas. Here emphasis is placed on political economy (advancing “post-capitalist” and “post-statist” geographies), prefigurative praxis, intersectionality, and the importance of direct action.
