      >Activities and Experiences of Interns
      >
      >FCNL Interns may work on a range of public policy issues, including
      >nuclear
      >disarmament, civil liberties, or Native American concerns. They may
      >assist
      >with lobbying, with field operations, or with publications. Interns
      >may
      >engage in direct, personal interaction with constituents by email and
      >telephone or may respond to routine information requests. They may
      >help
      >create and distribute materials for a legislative campaign or a voter
      >registration campaign.
      >
      >One of the current interns says, "Following legislative policy and
      >congressional activity on nuclear disarmament and North Korea,
      >including
      >attending hearings and briefings on Capitol Hill, has been an
      >incredible
      >learning experience. The learning curve while working at FCNL is
      >incredibly
      >steep. This internship has prepared me for a masters program in
      >public
      >policy, international affairs, or whatever field I eventually
      >choose.
      >In
      >addition, I've seen a significant improvement in my ability to be an
      >effective advocate for peace and justice."
      >
      >Another intern describes the pride and satisfaction she received from
      >her
      >work on a project as follows:
      >
      >"I felt a great sense of accomplishment when the "Peaceful Prevention
      >of
      >Deadly Conflict" booklets came in. It's a very different feeling
      >from
      >when
      >you produce your own piece of writing. Bridget [Moix] wrote most of
      >the
      >contents of the booklet, but I wrote parts, put in a few sentences
      >that
      >I
      >was really glad to have added. And I spent hours and hours going
      >back
      >and
      >forth with the designer, adjusting the layout, correcting typos. I
      >spent
      >the week that the FCNL office was closed in August with my old college
      >roommate in LA, and I remember lying on her apartment floor in a
      >patch
      >of
      >sun with the pages of the latest PDF version of the booklet spread out
      >around me, marking changes with a yellow highlighter. When the
      >booklets
      >came in from the printer, I felt like I had been part of producing
      >something
      >that FCNL would use for a long time. It was something much better
      >than
      >I
      >could ever have produced on my own, but still I felt instrumental in

      >20. BACK TO THE FUTURE: GENERATIONS OF FEMINISM
      >A one-day conference organized by the Center for Gender Studies.
      >
      >Saturday, February 28, 2004
      >University of Chicago's Ida Noyes Hall, Max Palevsky Theater, 1212
      >East
      >59th Street.
      >
      >Speakers include:
      >Aihwa Ong
      >Judith Halberstam
      >Nancy K. Miller
      >Kate Millett
      >Sabrina Craig
      >Lynn Spigel

      >Gayatri Spivak
      >Dorothy Allison
      >
      >Organizing "Back to the Future: Generations of Feminism" was
      >motivated
      >by two overarching concerns: that feminism is becoming "assumed" out
      >of
      >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,
      >and
      >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
      >panelists
      >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
      >revised,
      >refined, or rejected? How did you come to feminism? Was there an
      >event,
      >person, or experience that influenced your subsequent engagement with
      >the problem of gender? Has anything happened to change the way you
      >think
      >about or engage this problem? What might it mean to have become, or
      >for
      >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
      >coalition
      >aspect of contemporary feminist discourse--the conjoining of feminism
      >with
      >other political and/or epistemological projects--fundamentally
      >altered
      >the discipline? Do globalization studies, race studies, queer
      >studies,
      >even "gender" studies, need to be re-infused with feminism? Is there
      >a
      >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.
      >
