My name is Sara Ahmed, and this is my research blog. I am a feminist killjoy. It is what I do. It is how I think. It is my philosophy and my politics.
I was formerly the director of a new Centre for Feminist Research (CFR) at Goldsmiths. You can find further information about the CFR here.
Until the end of 2016, I am Professor of Race and Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths. From January 1 2017, I will be working as an independent feminist scholar and writer.
I recently completed a book Living a Feminist Life, which draws on everyday experiences of being a feminist to re-think some key aspects of feminist theory. I began this blog when I began the book: they were written together.
I will however keep the blog even though the book is finished!
The work of a feminist killjoy is not over.
