      >congressional activity on nuclear disarmament and North Korea,
      >attending hearings and briefings on Capitol Hill, has been an
      >learning experience. The learning curve while working at FCNL is

      >Organizing "Back to the Future: Generations of Feminism" was
      >by two overarching concerns: that feminism is becoming "assumed" out
      >existence; and that the relationship between second wave feminism and
      >later generations needs to be rethought. We have invited speakers at
      >different stages in their careers as feminist scholars and activists,
      >asked them to reflect on the past, and especially the future, of
      >feminism. Our goal is to produce a moment of reflection--both by
      >listening to
      >our distinguished panelists and generating discussion between
      >and audience members about the future(s) of feminism.
      >Speakers will respond to such questions as: Do you have a utopian
      >vision of the future? Did you once imagine utopias you have since
      >refined, or rejected? How did you come to feminism? Was there an
      >person, or experience that influenced your subsequent engagement with
      >the problem of gender? Has anything happened to change the way you
      >about or engage this problem? What might it mean to have become, or
      >one's work to have become, an "icon" or "classic" of feminist thought
      >and politics?
      >Ultimately, we hope in our discussion to confront the ways in which
      >feminism--as an academic discipline, a philosophy, a politics, or an
      >economic, legislative and cultural issue--has changed. Has the
      >aspect of contemporary feminist discourse--the conjoining of feminism
      >other political and/or epistemological projects--fundamentally
      >the discipline? Do globalization studies, race studies, queer
      >even "gender" studies, need to be re-infused with feminism? Is there
      >value to calling out feminism again on its own terms? Or not? These
      >questions are by no means exhaustive: we hope that each speaker will
      >contribute a unique perspective on where we have come and where we
      >ought to
      >be going.
