'What is my story? Like you, I have many', wrote feminist academic Sara Ahmed (Ahmed, 2010, p. 1). She asks, what is yours, what is mine? and begins her story at a table. 'Around the table a family gathers', she says, 'Always we are seated in the same place. . .as if we are trying to secure more than our place' (Ahmed, 2010, p. 1). In this paper,…

Fogarty, William; Riddle, Stewart; Lovell, Melissa; Wilson, Ben – Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, 2018

In her recent work, Sara Ahmed explores wilfulness as a negative charge made by some against others, thinking about the relationship between ill will and good will, the particular and the general, and the embeddedness of will in a political and cultural landscape. In Ahmed's reading, wilfulness is a characteristic often ascribed to those who do…
