Jamie Martin is a PhD candidate in the Department of History at Harvard University. His dissertation looks at the origins of the earliest plans to govern the world economy in twentieth-century Europe and the United States. His research follows the rise of a transnational network of economic experts during the interwar period, many of whom were affiliated with international organizations such as the League of Nations and the International Labour Organization, and all of whom were dedicated to the idea that the world economy was a rational system that could be studied and, once understood, managed. It examines how their rise to influence transformed the imagination of world order and the practices of internationalist politics. He has written on themes in international history and political economy for publications such as The London Review of Books, n+1, and Dissent, and his academic articles have appeared in journals such as Modern Intellectual History (forthcoming) and The Journal of European Studies. email@example.com
