Knocking on the Door: Complaints and Other Stories about Institutions
In this lecture, Sara Ahmed will share some stories of making complaints about abuses of power at universities. She will show how complaints can bring so much about institutions into view. The lecture attends to how and why doors come up in stories about making complaints. It concludes with a consideration of the work of “complaint collectives” and how, by complaining, we can keep “knocking on the door” of institutions not in order to demand entry, but to cause disturbance.
