    Refugee Resettlement, Rootlessness, and Assimilation.Katy Fulfer & Rita A. Gardiner - 2019 - Arendt Studies 3:25-47.
    We explore how a refugee’s experience of rootlessness may persist after they resettle in a new country. Drawing primarily on “We Refugees,” we focus on assimilation as an uprooting phenomenon that compels a person to forget their roots, thereby perpetuating threats to identity and the loss of community that is a condition for political agency. Arendt presents assimilation in a binary way: a person either conforms to or resists pressures to conform. We seek to move beyond this binary, arguing that (...)

    An Anti-Commodification Defense of Veganism.Patrick Clipsham & Katy Fulfer - 2016 - Ethics, Policy and Environment 19 (3):285-300.
    We develop an anti-commodification defense of ethical veganism which holds that common defenses of ethical veganism can benefit from treating the commodification of non-human animals as a serious, distinct moral wrong. Drawing inspiration from Elizabeth Anderson’s account of commodification, we develop an account of commodification that identifies most uses of animals in developed countries as forms of problematic commodification. We then show that this position can make significant contributions to both welfarist defenses of ethical veganism and animal rights theories.

    The Patient‐Worker: A Model for Human Research Subjects and Gestational Surrogates.Emma Ryman & Katy Fulfer - 2018 - Developing World Bioethics 18 (4):310-320.
    We propose the ‘patient-worker’ as a theoretical construct that responds to moral problems that arise with the globalization of healthcare and medical research. The patient-worker model recognizes that some participants in global medical industries are workers and are owed worker's rights. Further, these participants are patient-like insofar as they are beneficiaries of fiduciary relationships with healthcare professionals. We apply the patient-worker model to human subjects research and commercial gestational surrogacy. In human subjects research, subjects are usually characterized as either patients (...)

    Commercial Contract Pregnancy in India, Judgment, and Resistance to Oppression.Katy Fulfer - 2015 - Hypatia 30 (4):846-861.
    Feminist scholars have done much to identify oppressive forces within transnational commercial contract pregnancy and its social context that may coerce women into becoming gestational laborers. Feminists have also been careful not to depict gestational laborers as merely passive victims of oppression, though there is disagreement about the degree to which contract pregnancy offers opportunities for agency. In this article I consider how women who sell gestational labor may be agents against their oppression. I make explicit connections between resistance and (...)

    Cross-Border Reproductive Travel, Neocolonialism, and Canadian Policy.Katy Fulfer - 2017 - Ijfab: International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics 10 (1):225-247.
    Reproductive travel refers to travel undertaken across national, geographic, and cultural borders to facilitate assisted reproduction. Sometimes, intended parents cross borders to hire a gestational laborer or to acquire eggs or sperm; sometimes, providers may travel to the intended parents’ home country.1 In addition, industries have developed to export gametes across borders, so that a person in a country such as the United States might arrange that gametes from the Ukraine be sent to India to be combined through in vitro (...)
