Martin’s Article Published in French Journal
Professor of Government Robert Martin recently published a research article in the French scholarly journal, Participations.
Titled “« D’une maniere pacifique et ordonnee ». Town meetings et assemblees populaires à l’epoque de la fondation des Etats-Unis” (“‘In a Peaceable and Orderly Manner:’ Town Meetings and Popular Assemblies at the American Founding”), the article is part of a special issue examining the American town meeting and similar forums as exemplars of democratic theory.
Martin looks beyond town meetings to a broader array of civic gatherings in order to explore the inclusions and exclusions of competing democratic norms.
