This week, a number of rabble.ca staff and others are participating in a "Vegan Challenge" -- one week of eating a vegan diet. Participants are blogging about the experience, and reflecting on the politics on our dinner plates. As a complement to the Vegan Challenge, this piece by Steffanie Pinch examines the history and evolution of veganism.
