Author Biography

David Mills
I studied anthropology at SOAS, and conducted fieldwork in a school and university in Uganda. As a doctoral student, I became interested in anthropological pedagogies and the teaching of ethnographic skills, and was involved in national debates about teaching and the work of C-SAP (Higher Education Academy Centre for Sociology, Anthropology and Politics) for almost a decade. I have held lectureships in Development Studies, Cultural Studies, Anthropology and now Education. As well as finishing an ethnographic textbook aimed at research students in Education, I write about the institutional history of the social sciences, their pedagogies and the politics of disciplinarity in the contemporary university.
