Dr. Alex Lockwood is a creative writer, journalist, activist and academic interested in how we produce knowledge and make meaning through practices of writing, especially around interspecies relations, representations of nonhuman others, animal advocacy and protection, vegan life practices, and running. He has published on the role of emotions, affect and identity in the areas of pro-environmental behaviour and representations of ‘green feelings’ in cultural production. As a journalist and creative writer he is widely published, and as well as twenty years in journalism he has just completed his PhD in Creative Writing at Newcastle University. He is currently writing a popular academic book on climate change, veganism, and the Save Movement.
