Dr Jonah Miller

Research Fellow, King's College

I am a historian of gender, local government and law enforcement in early modern Britain and the British Atlantic world. I arrived in Cambridge in 2020 as Research Fellow in the study of Prejudice, partly funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. My PhD from King's College London will form the basis of a book, Gender and Policing in Early Modern England, which is under contract with Cambridge University Press.
