Abstract [en]

This essay reflects on some specific questions posed by the organizers of the Past,Present, Future conference held at Umea ̊ University, Sweden, in June 2007 to the keynotespeakers on their personal experiences of the influences, inspirations, challenges, and problems inand around Women’s/Gender Studies over the last 30 years. It extends the notion of ‘‘the personalis political’’ to: the personal is work is political is theoretical. It also critically reflects oncontinuities and discontinuities in women’s studies, (pro)feminism, ‘‘men’’ and my selves. Fourkinds of (spheres of) activity and experience (the personal, work, the political, the theoretical)are considered in relation to four social spaces, social sites, or social institutional formations (inthis context, primarily: selves, ‘‘men’’, feminism/profeminism, women’s/gender studies).
