Jamie Martin, Georgetown University


Jamie Martin is an Assistant Professor of History. His research focuses on the history of capitalism, modern Europe, and international order. Before arriving at Georgetown, he was an ARC Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Laureate Research Program in International History at the University of Sydney. His current book project, Governing Global Capitalism in the Era of Total War (under advance contract at Harvard University Press), investigates the origins of the earliest international schemes to govern the world's capitalist economy, which emerged out of efforts to stabilize European political and economic orders in the aftermath of the First World War. His research also looks at the history of the social sciences, and his writings on political economy and European history for a public audience have appeared in the London Review of Books, The Nation, and Bookforum. He originally hails from Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
