Sara Ahmed (Goldsmiths) 'Willful Queers: A Queer History of Will'
This lecture will offer a queer history of the will, showing how ‘the will’ has been associated in the history of ideas with the tendency to deviate or to lose one’s place; wandering, and error (to err is to stray). The lecture explores queer politics (and specifically queer of colour politics) as a politics of willfulness in which bodies are not only willing not to go with the flow but are willing to cause its obstruction.
