    Disrupted Breath, Songlines of Breathlessness: An Interdisciplinary Response.Alice Malpass, James Dodd, Gene Feder, Jane Macnaughton, Arthur Rose, Oriana Walker, Tina Williams & Havi Carel - 2019 - Medical Humanities 45 (3):294-303.
    Health research is often bounded by disciplinary expertise. While cross-disciplinary collaborations are often forged, the analysis of data which draws on more than one discipline at the same time is underexplored. Life of Breath, a 5-year project funded by the Wellcome Trust to understand the clinical, historical and cultural phenomenology of the breath and breathlessness, brings together an interdisciplinary team, including medical humanities scholars, respiratory clinicians, medical anthropologists, medical historians, cultural theorists, artists and philosophers.

    ‘The Body Says It’: The Difficulty of Measuring and Communicating Sensations of Breathlessness.Alice Malpass, Coreen Mcguire & Jane Macnaughton - 2022 - Medical Humanities 48 (1):63-75.
    Breathlessness is a sensation affecting those living with chronic respiratory disease, obesity, heart disease and anxiety disorders.

  3. The Political Rationalities of Fair-Trade Consumption in the United Kingdom.Alice Malpass, Paul Cloke, Clive Barnett & Nick Clarke - 2007 - Politics and Society 35 (4):583-607.
    This article situates the analysis of fair-trade consumption in the context of debates about civic activism and political participation. It argues that fair-trade consumption should be understood as a political phenomenon, which, through the mediating action of organizations and campaigns, makes claims on states, corporations, and institutions. This argument is made by way of a case study of Traidcraft, a key player in the fair-trade movement in the United Kingdom. The study focuses on how Traidcraft approaches and enrolls its supporters.
