Sari was one of my most inspiring lecturers whilst at Goldsmiths. Reading some of the other reviews its difficult to say anything new - except perhaps that she is one of the reasons I decided to become a lecturer myself. Its a long road and I'm still on it but a few years after I left, I was teaching A levels whilst studying and asked Sari, on the off chance, if she would come and discuss identity with my students. She talked with them for three hours - just talked - to a room of 17 and 18 year olds. At first they sat there enraptured, then they began asking questions, then they began asking when she was coming back.
Don't attend one of her lecture series expecting to come out the other end as quite the same person you were when you went in.
Probably my favourite lecturer I've ever had at university. Intelligent, funny and approachable. Understands the needs of the students, which seems to be rarer and rarer these days. Wish she could still officially teach me but she does go out of her way to still help students that reach out to her - and a lot of us do.
She's not my lecturer anymore. At least, not officially.
Sari was so wonderful! Why Goldmiths lost her and Sara Ahmed is beyond me!! The only reason why I treasure my time at Goldsmiths is because of Sari Wastell and a handful of other professors (like Mark Lamont!).
nothing at all. she is a joy.
