Paul Phillip van der Linde is an economic and social historian interested in the narratives of marginalised groups within the Dutch colonial world during the 17th and 18th centuries. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of the Witwatersrand, and was awarded the J.M. Marais Prize for his dissertation on community organisation in Cape Town, South Africa. His M.A. research, completed at the University of Cape Town, examined the role of formerly enslaved individuals in the agricultural development of Stellenbosch, South Africa.

His current research is concerned with the administration and commodification of land by Dutch colonial authorities in North America, South Africa, and Sri Lanka, and how this influenced the socio-economic position of formerly enslaved people in these colonies.
