For this week’s e-response, please read the chapter from Michelle Murphy’s Sick Building
Syndrome,listen to “Snowflake” by 99% Invisible, and respond to the following questions:
1. According to Murphy, how do research methodologies differ between the fields of Toxicology and Popular Epidemiology? What specific techniques does each methodology use to make claims about exposure?
2. In determining the scientific boundaries of occupational exposure to industrial chemicals, how did Toxicology and Popular Epidemiology simultaneously produce what Murphy calls “domains of imperceptibility”?
3. What was your reaction to the community of Snowflake? What detail from the podcast stuck with you the most?
