Jamie Martin is an Assistant Professor in the Department of History and School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. 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, and he received his PhD from Harvard in 2016. At the Center for Ethics, he will continue work on his book manuscript, Governing Global Capitalism in the Era of Total War (under advance contract at Harvard University Press), which investigates the earliest international schemes to govern the world’s capitalist economy, and their origins 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, Bookforum, and elsewhere. He originally hails from Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
