2004-03-01

facebook twitter google +1 reddit email


Feminism has rethought and transformed almost every area of modern life. On Saturday, Feb. 28, writers, scholars and activists who defined its past and those who are creating its future will come together at Back to the Future: Generations of Feminism, to rethink feminism's history and goals. The conference, sponsored by the University of Chicago's Center for Gender Studies, will run the gamut from bestsellers and activists to deconstructionists. It will include writers like Kate Millett, Michele Faith Wallace and Dorothy Allison, whose books stirred controversy and brought feminism's goals to the public from the '70s through the '90s, as well as scholars like Gayatri Spivak, who helped create Post-Colonial studies.
