SWMS 210 Final review General points to take away from the class Senorita Extraviada Sensitive to own technologies of representation. See the way in which women of Juarez are being brutalized not only by govt, pimps, and police conspiracy, but by the way technology is used to document their murders. Photographing of pornographic abuse of Iraqi soldiers. What happens when they’re photographed is they take on new significance. That is what Portillo is trying to grapple with. What happens when it enters realm of visual? Used as instrument of social control, used as a way of surveying women of color. Think back to Catherine MacKinnon, pornography is reconsolidation of gender hierarchy. We need to deal with violent representation and its relationship to reality. “Truth” is constantly being manipulated and turned into a form of social control, and that’s what representation is about. Portillo needs to figure out how to use photograph for her own purposes. How does she use them and not reproduce them in their pornographic form? How does she create spectrality? How does she deal with hard facts and reality? Our desires for resolution are constantly frustrated.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
