Mils Hills

Research output: Contribution to Specialist PublicationBulletin/Magazine


As an anthropologist, I’m always fascinated by how people think about the ‘Other’, those people who are not like us. In the context of the ongoing threat of terrorist attacks in Europe (and beyond) I hope that I’m not the only one troubled by the low quality of academic and journalistic analysis and rhetoric around a particular feared other: the terrorist.
