    Affective (Self-) Transformations: Empathy, Neoliberalism and International Development.Carolyn Pedwell - 2012 - Feminist Theory 13 (2):163-179.
    Affective self-transformation premised on empathy has been understood within feminist and anti-racist literatures as central to achieving social justice. Through juxtaposing debates about empathy within feminist and anti-racist theory with rhetorics of empathy in international development, and particularly writing about ‘immersions’, this article explores how the workings of empathy might be reconceptualised when relations of postcoloniality and neoliberalism are placed in the foreground. I argue that in the neoliberal economy in which the international aid apparatus operates, empathetic self-transformation can become (...)

    Habit and the Politics of Social Change: A Comparison of Nudge Theory and Pragmatist Philosophy.Carolyn Pedwell - 2017 - Body and Society 23 (4):59-94.
    Re-thinking the political workings of habit and habituation, this article suggests, is vital to understanding the logics and possibilities of social change today. Any endeavour to explore habit’s affirmative potential, however, must confront its legacies as a colonialist, imperialist and capitalist technology. As a means to explore what it is that differentiates contemporary neoliberal modes of governing through habit from more critical approaches, this article compares contemporary ‘nudge’ theory and policy, as espoused by the behavioural economist Richard Thaler and the (...)

    Weaving Relational Webs: Theorizing Cultural Difference and Embodied Practice.Carolyn Pedwell - 2008 - Feminist Theory 9 (1):87-107.
    Through illustrating the similarities between embodied practices rooted in different cultural contexts, feminist theorists seek to reveal the instability of essentialist binaries which distinguish various groups as culturally, ethnically and morally `different'. They also aim to query how the term `culture' is employed differentially on the basis of embodied axes such as race and nation. However, in emphasizing overarching commonalities between practices, feminist cross-cultural comparisons risk collapsing into economies of sameness that elide the complex relations of power through which such (...)

    Theorizing ‘African’ Female Genital Cutting and ‘Western’ Body Modifications: A Critique of the Continuum and Analogue Approaches.Carolyn Pedwell - 2007 - Feminist Review 86 (1):45-66.
    Making links between different embodied cultural practices has become increasingly common within the feminist literature on multiculturalism and cultural difference as a means to counter racism and cultural essentialism. The cross-cultural comparison most commonly made in this context is that between ‘African’ practices of female genital cutting and ‘western’ body modifications. In this article, I analyse some of the ways in which FGC and other body-altering procedures are compared within this feminist literature. I identify two main strategies of linking such (...)
