    – Priscilla Wald, “Cultures and Carriers: “Typhoid Mary” and the Science of Social Control,” Social Text, No. 52/53, Queer Transexions of Race, Nation, and Gender (Autumn – Winter, 1997), pp. 181-214; Available in the Readings Folder and on JSTOR at: http://www.jstor.org/stable/466739

       Then discuss:

       Wald discusses how the concept of “social control” relates or is exemplified by the Mary Mallon case.  Choose one of the aspects of Wald’s argument and discuss how it relates to the Typhoid Mary documentary.  Do these help us understand the significance the ‘Typhoid Mary’ case has for the history of medicine, or for the treatment of epidemics today?
