    The Politics of Attachment: Lines of Flight with Bowlby, Deleuze and Guattari.Robbie Duschinsky, Monica Greco & Judith Solomon - 2015 - Theory, Culture and Society 32 (7-8):173-195.
    Research on attachment is widely regarded in sociology and feminist scholarship as politically conservative – oriented by a concern to police families, pathologize mothers and emphasize psychological at the expense of socio-economic factors. These critiques have presented attachment theory as constructing biological imperatives to naturalize contingent, social demands. We propose that a more effective critique of the politically conservative uses of attachment theory is offered by engaging with the ‘attachment system’ at the level of ontology. In developing this argument we (...)

    The Politics of Purity: When, Actually, is Dirt Matter Out of Place?Robbie Duschinsky - 2013 - Thesis Eleven 119 (1):63-77.
    In Purity and Danger, Douglas theorizes purity and impurity in terms of the instantiation and disruption of a shared symbolic order. Purity/impurity discourses act, according to Purity and Danger, as a homeostatic system which ensures the preservation of this social whole, generally encoding that which threatens social equilibrium as impurity. There have been calls for new social theory on this ‘under-theorized’ topic. Presenting such further reflections, I argue that Douglas’ account is less a full explanation than a regularity. Representations of (...)

  5. Truth, Purification and Power: Foucault’s Genealogy of Purity and Impurity in and After The Will to Know Lectures.Kate Lampitt Adey & Robbie Duschinsky - 2014 - European Journal of Social Theory 17 (4):425-442.
    Foucault’s 1970–71 lectures at the Collège de France, The Will to Know, highlight the significance of themes of purity and impurity in Western thought. Reflecting on these themes coincided with the emergence of Foucault’s theory of power. This article presents the first analysis of Foucault’s investigation of purity and impurity in The Will to Know lectures, identifying the distinctive theory Foucault offers of purity as a discursive apparatus addressing correspondence between the subject and the truth through the image of relative (...)

    Attachment and the Archive: Barriers and Facilitators to the Use of Historical Sociology as Complementary Developmental Science.Robbie Duschinsky - 2019 - Science in Context 32 (3):309-326.
    ArgumentThis article explores historical sociology as a complementary source of knowledge for scientific research, considering barriers and facilitators to this work through reflections on one project. This project began as a study of the emergence and reception of the infant disorganized attachment classification, introduced in the 1980s by Ainsworth’s student Mary Main, working with Judith Solomon. Elsewhere I have reported on the findings of collaborative work with attachment researchers, without giving full details of how this came about. Here, I will (...)

    Foucault, the Family and Politics.Robbie Duschinsky & Leon Antonio Rocha (eds.) - 2012 - Palgrave-Macmillan.
    Foucault, the Family and Politics presents a rich account of the politics and power relations that organize family and intimate life, advancing with and beyond Foucault's classic and more recently-published writings. The obligation to attend school, to go to work, to stay healthy, to follow the law – 'being a good son, a good husband, and so on' as Foucault wryly remarks – are frequently organized through the family. Including contributions from a range of well-known scholars and an essay by (...)

    “Hidden Behind the Supplement”: Agamben Contra Functionalism on Purity and Impurity.Robbie Duschinsky - 2014 - Critical Horizons 15 (3):249-265.
    In contrast to functionalist explanations of themes of purity and impurity as an expression and affirmation of the social order, Giorgio Agamben considers purity and impurity as comparisons of phenomena with their imputed essence. From the perspective offered by Agamben, judgements regarding purity and impurity can be seen as in part constructing the essence against which they supposedly simply measure phenomena. Agamben’s investigations suggest that on occasions when themes of purity or impurity are invoked within Western discourses on subjectivity, the (...)

    Nietzsche: Through the Lens of Purity.Robbie Duschinsky - 2011 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 41 (1):50.
    In remarks scattered across his corpus of writings, Nietzsche offers a fascinating analysis of the theme of purity. In this article I systematize these fragments into a genealogy and draw out conclusions relevant to philosophy and cultural criticism. Nietzsche argues that the Christian use of purity, as both an ideal and a means of achieving self-martyrdom of the will, has been retained in modern Western culture. He is generally quite skeptical of purity, considering it to be tightly associated with dominating (...)

    Pure and Impure in the Philosophy of Giorgio Agamben.Robbie Duschinsky - 2012 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 2012 (160):139-164.
    Metaphysics, including the metaphysics of justice, is forgetting or blinding oneself to the violence of the pure. Arkady Plotnitsky: 1. Without a master, one cannot be cleaned. - Purification, whether by fire or by the word, by baptism or by death, requires submission to the law. Dominique Laporte: 2. Pure and Impure until Homo Sacer - The pure and impure have long been of interest to Giorgio Agamben. In his first text, The Man Without Content, Agamben writes of “pure culture” (...)

    ‘Pulling the World in and Pushing It Away’: Participating Bodies and the Concept of Coping.Robbie Duschinsky, Samantha Reisz & Serena Messina - 2019 - Medical Humanities 45 (2):124-130.
    In her lead article in this special issue, Monica Greco offers the concept of participating bodies as a ’possibility of conceiving bodies themselves—and bodily events such as disease/illness—as expressing values and perhaps even socially meaningful "preferences"’. Such a position seeks to avoid capitulation to a) an image of bodily processes as without values or responsiveness, object rather than participant; b) an image of human agents as unitary, self-knowing, sovereign choosers—unless ill. This article will explore this perspective as applied to the (...)

    Schizoid Femininities and Interstitial Spaces: Childhood and Gender in Celine Sciamma’s Tomboy and P.J. Hogan’s Peter Pan.Robbie Duschinsky - 2015 - Diogenes 62 (1):128-140.
    Childhood innocence has often been treated by scholars as an empty, idealised signifier. This article contests such accounts, arguing that innocence is best regarded as a powerfully unmarked training in heternormativity, alongside class and race norms. This claim will be demonstrated through attention to two recent films addressing childhood: Celine Sciamma’s Tomboy and P.J. Hogan’s Peter Pan. The films characterise young femininity as an ‘impossible space’, in which subjects face the contradictory, schizoid demands to simultaneously show both childhood innocence and (...)

  17. What Does Sexualisation Mean?Robbie Duschinsky - 2013 - Feminist Theory 14 (3):255-264.
    ‘Sexualisation’ has been dismissed by some as no more than yet another moral panic about youth and sex. However, it is striking that the term appears to have helped galvanise feminist activism, speaking in some way to the experiences of young people. Building from a history and analysis of the term, I propose that ‘sexualisation’ has served as an interpretive theory of contradictory gender norms, using the figure of the ‘girl’ to gesture towards an intensifying contradiction between the demands that (...)

    Heraclitus, Seaford, and Reversible Exchange.Chris Kassam & Robbie Duschinsky - 2017 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 31 (4):609-633.
    A "figure of reversible exchange" can be discerned in the fragments of Heraclitus. Again and again we encounter this rhetorical pattern: in the first part of a fragment multiplicity is framed and contained within unity, only for this movement subsequently to be inverted. This inversion, a chiasmus, is not merely a discursive tool of emphasis through contrast; its usage in forming watery and unstable contrasts between the Many and the One, and between Becoming and Being, suggests that the figure operates (...)

    ’Knowing Everything and yet Nothing About Her’: Medical Students’ Reflections on Their Experience of the Dissection Room.Christopher Kassam, Robbie Duschinsky, Cecilia Brassett & Stephen Barclay - 2020 - Medical Humanities 46 (4):403-410.
    Anatomy education by cadaveric dissection teaches medical students not only the formal curriculum in human anatomy, but also a ‘hidden curriculum’ whereby they learn the attitudes, identities and behaviours expected of doctors. While dissection has been investigated as a challenge to and training in emotional regulation, little attention has been paid hitherto to the forms of medical knowledge and identity which students encounter and develop in the dissection room. This study analyses a corpus of 119 tributes written by three consecutive (...)

    Augustine, Rousseau, and the Idea of Childhood1.Robbie Duschinsky - 2013 - Heythrop Journal 54 (1):77-88.
    The social history of childhood usually identifies Rousseau as the origin of our contemporary understanding of the topic. The literature describes how Rousseau's notion of childhood as a time of natural innocence became embedded in key social forms such as the family and universal education. Scholars working in the history of political thought, however, have uncovered a fundamental relationship between Rousseau and Augustine. Analysis shows that Rousseau's philosophy of childhood recapitulates many Augustinian elements, and was not therefore an ex nihilo (...)
