    Drugs, Brains and Other Subalterns: Public Debate and the New Materialist Politics of Addiction.Mats Ekendahl, Kylie Valentine & Suzanne Fraser - 2018 - Body and Society 24 (4):58-86.
    Over the last few decades feminists, science and technology studies scholars and others have grappled with how to take materiality into account in understanding social practices, subjectivity and events. One key area for these debates has been drug use and addiction. At the same time, neuroscientific accounts of drug use and addiction have also arisen. This development has attracted criticism as simplistically reinstating material determinism. In this article we draw on 80 interviews with health professionals directly involved in drug-related public (...)

    Citizenship, Identity, Blood Donation.Kylie Valentine - 2005 - Body and Society 11 (2):113-128.
    Blood donation is broadly understood to be a public and altruistic act. However, new theories of citizenship and subjectivity suggest that the individual and embodied qualities of blood also need to be taken into account when examining donation. This article examines the relationship between public and private elements of blood donation. Donating blood is not an entirely public act, and does not provide an entirely impersonal resource. The embodied self is integral to public practices, and, equally, public domains are important (...)

    The Freighted Social Histories of HIV and Hepatitis C: Exploring Service Providers’ Perspectives on Stigma in the Current Epidemics.Kylie Valentine, Anthony Smith, Asha Persson, Rebecca Gray, Joanne Bryant, Myra Hamilton, Jack Wallace, Kerryn Drysdale & Christy E. Newman - forthcoming - Medical Humanities:medhum-2022-012382.
    A virus has a social history. In the case of the hepatitis C virus and HIV, this history is one involving stigma and discrimination, advocacy and activism, and recent dramatic improvements in treatment. These social histories influence the experience of people who live with the viruses, and those who work with them. One aspect of this is the impact of social changes on the biographical disruption and integration brought about by illness. Healthcare practitioners who see significant improvements in the effectiveness (...)

    ‘Making Blood Flow’: Materializing Blood in Body Modification and Blood-Borne Virus Prevention.Suzanne Fraser & Kylie Valentine - 2006 - Body and Society 12 (1):97-119.
    This article combines in-depth interviews and Karen Barad's work on materiality to think about the ways in which the materiality of blood might be understood in relation to sociality and blood-borne virus prevention among BDSM body modification practitioners in Sydney, Australia. In doing so, it confronts questions of how the materiality of blood can be theorized in ways that neither presume a fixed, a priori ontological status or essence, nor exclude it from an active role in the production of realities.
