Dr Polly Ha is a Korean American British historian, a prize-winning academic and author.
Drawing from her international background, her recent work exploited a new archive of manuscripts to explore some of the earliest debates over independence in the English-speaking world.
She is currently working on the ethics of innovation and debates over ecclesiastical and intellectual change. Her work also examines early modern conspiracies and the long term effects of religious hostility and political instability.
Whilst specializing in the religious, political and intellectual culture of Tudor, Stuart, and Revolutionary Britain, she has also written and taught on colonial America and Europe.
