    Resisting Power, Retooling Justice: Promises of Feminist Postcolonial Technosciences.Banu Subramaniam & Anne Pollock - 2016 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 41 (6):951-966.
    This special issue explores intersections of feminism, postcolonialism, and technoscience. The papers emerged out of a 2014 research seminar on Feminist Postcolonial Science and Technology Studies at the Institute for Research on Women and Gender, University of Michigan. Through innovative engagement with rich empirical cases and theoretical trends in postcolonial theory, feminist theory, and STS, the papers trace local and global circulations of technoscience. They illuminate ways in which science and technology are imbricated in circuits of state power and global (...)

    On the Suspended Sentences of the Scott Sisters: Mass Incarceration, Kidney Donation, and the Biopolitics of Race in the United States.Anne Pollock - 2015 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 40 (2):250-271.
    In December 2010, the governor of Mississippi suspended the dual life sentences of two African American sisters who had been imprisoned for sixteen years on an extraordinary condition: that Gladys Scott donate a kidney to her ailing sister Jamie Scott. The Scott Sisters’ case is a highly unusual one, yet it is a revealing site for inquiry into US biopolitics more broadly. Close attention to the conditional release and its context demands a broader frame than traditional bioethics and helps to (...)

    Pharmaceutical Meaning-Making Beyond Marketing: Racialized Subjects of Generic Thiazide.Anne Pollock - 2008 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 36 (3):530-536.
    In contrast to discussions of BiDil, this paper explores racial meaning-making processes around an old generic hypertension drug. By unpacking a vignette about race and thiazide outside marketing or medicine, it shows that racialization of drugs exceeds those spheres and moves in unpredictable ways.

    Pharmaceutical Meaning-Making beyond Marketing: Racialized Subjects of Generic Thiazide.Anne Pollock - 2008 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 36 (3):530-536.
    If we want to understand the allure of pharmaceuticals, we need to look beyond both medical efficacy and profit motives. The success of a drug depends not only on these, but also on how it mobilizes prior conceptions of identity. The extent to which a drug is taken — or talked about — is related to commodity properties that exceed the physiological and the economic. In implicit contrast to the discussions of BiDil elsewhere in this collection, I explore how the (...)

    Reading Friedan: Toward a Feminist Articulation of Heart Disease.Anne Pollock - 2010 - Body and Society 16 (4):77-97.
    This article uses Betty Friedan’s idiosyncratic invocations of heart disease in her work from the 1960s through the 1990s, as well as her autobiographical comments about it and her theory of the feminine mystique, to grapple with a feminist articulation of heart disease. Although this leading cause of death for women in industrialized countries has been peripheral to feminist health discourse and most women’s preoccupations, heart disease played an interesting narrative role in Friedan’s work and life. Drawing on Friedan’s unconventional (...)

    Complicating Power in High-Tech Reproduction: Narratives of Anonymous Paid Egg Donors. [REVIEW]Anne Pollock - 2003 - Journal of Medical Humanities 24 (3-4):241-263.
    This paper is informed by my own participant observation and uses my own ethnography which included conducting in-depth interviews with anonymous paid egg donors and observing a listserv for women considering, pursuing, or having completed egg donation, to illustrate the way that power operates at this particular site of the reproductive center in postmodernity. After outlining who the consumers and providers of eggs are, I will use Foucault's concepts of biopower, disciplinary power, and normativity to describe how anonymous paid egg (...)
