Ann Hughes is Professor (Emerita) of Early Modern History at Keele University (United Kingdom) where she taught for almost twenty years, following spells at the Open and Manchester Universities. Her research focuses on the religious and political implications of the revolutionary crisis in mid-seventeenth century Britain, with particular recent interests in print culture and modes of communication, in preaching, and in gender. She is the author of many essays and articles, including ‘Men, the ‘public' and the ‘private' in the English Revolution’ in The Politics of the Public Sphere in Early Modern England, edited Peter Lake and Steve Pincus (Manchester University Press, 2007) and of four books: Politics, Society and Civil War in Warwickshire (Cambridge University Press, 1987); The Causes of the English Civil War (Palgrave Macmillan, 2nd edition, 1998); Gangraena and the Struggle for the English Revolution (Oxford University Press, 2004), and Gender and the English Revolution (Routledge, 2011); and she co-edited, with Thomas Corns and David Loewenstein, The Complete Works of the radical visionary, GerrardWinstanley (Oxford University Press, 2009). Her work has been supported by grants from the British Academy, the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Leverhulme Trust, and by fellowships at the Huntington and Folger Shakespeare Libraries. She is currently working on studies of Parliamentarian and Puritan preaching in mid-seventeenth century England, and on the complex engagements of women and men with the parliamentarian war-time state.

A best-selling author and historian, she has tracked down family papers and residences from Lydiard Park and Nottingham Castle to Fonmon Castle and the Tower of London.

And the occasional ghost. But that's a different story…
