- Reflect on Chapter 7 of Medical Apartheid (on the Tuskegee Syphilis Study). What was surprising? What technologies and diversity issues were raised?
- Discuss a piece of fictional pop culture media that you think propagates (or analyzes) the biases that derived from historical medical discrimination. (Hint: Medical dramas, legal dramas, and superhero stories can be a good place to start.) I will ask you to add it to a spreadsheet next week, and we will screen these clips throughout the semester.
- Required Reading: Read or listen to Chapter 8 of Medical Apartheid by medical ethicist Harriet Washington. This chapter takes a deep dive into issues of reproductive control and race.
