    Leaky Bodies and Boundaries: Feminism, Postmodernism and (Bio)Ethics.Margrit Shildrick - 1997 - Routledge.
    Drawing on postmodernist analyses, Leaky Bodies and Boundaries presents a feminist investigation into the marginalization of women within western discourse that denies both female moral agency and bodylines. With reference to contemporary and historical issues in biomedicine, the book argues that the boundaries of both the subject and the body are no longer secure. The aim is both to valorize women and to suggest that "leakiness" may be the very ground for a postmodern feminist ethic. The contribution made by Margrit (...)

    The Critical Turn in Feminist Bioethics: The Case of Heart Transplantation.Margrit Shildrick - 2008 - International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics 1 (1):28-47.
    Given previously successful interventions that already have shaken up the convention, it is puzzling that the feminist critique of bioethics should be slow to embrace the exciting new developments that have emerged in philosophy and critical cultural studies over the last fifteen years or so. Both in the arenas of poststructuralism and postmodernism and in the powerful revival of phenomenological thought, in which the stress on embodiment is highly appropriate to bioethics, there is much that might augment the adequacy of (...)

    Becoming Vulnerable: Contagious Encounters and the Ethics of Risk. [REVIEW]Margrit Shildrick - 2000 - Journal of Medical Humanities 21 (4):215-227.
    In western discourse the notion of the contagious, the unclean or the contaminated is never just a neutral descriptor but carries the weight of all that stands against—and paradoxically secures—the categories of normative ontology and epistemology. Set against the ideal closure and invulnerability of the self's “clean and proper body,” this paper investigates the condition of disability as a potentially contaminatory threat. But the given precarious psychic constitution of the subject, and the ontological insecurity of self performativity, can we reconfigure (...)

    “Why Should Our Bodies End at the Skin?”: Embodiment, Boundaries, and Somatechnics.Margrit Shildrick - 2015 - Hypatia 30 (1):13-29.
    Donna Haraway's enduring question—“Why should our bodies end at the skin?” —is ever more relevant in the postmodern era, where issues of bodies, boundaries, and technologies increasingly challenge not only the normative performance of the human subject, but also the very understanding of what counts as human. Critical Disability Studies has taken up the problematic of technology, particularly in relation to the deployment of prostheses by people with disabilities. Yet rehabilitation to normative practice or appearance is no longer the point; (...)

    Deciding on Death: Conventions and Contestations in the Context of Disability. [REVIEW]Margrit Shildrick - 2008 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 5 (2-3):209-219.
    Conflicts between bioethicists and disability theorists often arise over the permissibility of euthanasia and physician assisted suicide. Where mainstream bioethicists propose universalist guidelines that will direct action across a range of effectively disembodied situations, and take for granted that moral agency requires autonomy, feminist bioethicists demand a contextualisation of the circumstances under which moral decision making is conducted, and stress a more relational view of autonomy that does not require strict standards of independent agency. Nonetheless, neither traditional nor feminist perspectives (...)

    Leaky Bodies and Boundaries : Feminism, Deconstruction and Bioethics.Margrit Shildrick - unknown
    This thesis draws on poststructuralism/postmodernism to present a feminist investigation into the human body, its modes of (self)identification, and its insertion into systems of bioethics. I argue that, contrary to conventional paradigms, the boundaries not only of the subject, but of the body too, cannot be secured. In exploring and contesting the closure and disembodiment of the ethical subject, I propose instead an incalculable, but nonetheless fully embodied, diversity of provisional subject positions. My aim is to valorise women and situate (...)

    Reconfiguring the Bioethics of Reproduction.Margrit Shildrick - 2004 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 11 (1):77-85.
    The paper contends that, despite critiquing certain aspects of modernist thought feminist bioethics has become stuck in its own inadequate paradigms that pay insufficient attention to either the theoretical insights of postmodernism, or to the capacities of biotechnology in the postmodern era to disrupt prior certainties. In the face of an incalculable expansion of both theoretical and material possibilities, feminist bioethicists working in the field of reproduction have remained largely unwilling to reconfigure notions such as embodiment, subjectivity, agency, and so (...)

    Some Speculations on Matters of Touch.Margrit Shildrick - 2001 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 26 (4):387 – 404.
    In this essay, I examine the question of whether it is possible that the encounter with the other could be mediated such that the interval of distance would lose its determining power. I reflect on some instances of extraordinary corporeality, most particularly the phenomenon of conjoined twins, in order to problematize the relation between subjects as they are embodied. Where the normative body is supposedly marked out by the closed boundaries of the skin, the figuration of the anomalous body as (...)

    What constitutes the normative body is always and everywhere open to challenge and disruption, particularly in the era of postmodernity when contemporary forms of technological practice intervene directly in our bodies. I shall focus on heart transplantation where, followingthe graft, the recipient’s sense of self as a bounded and unique individual is necessarily disturbed, and it is clear that an outcome favourable to extended life expectancy cannot be read through clinical measures alone. My speculative suggestion is that there are many (...)
