The Yale Center for the Study of Representative Institutions presents a book colloquium: “Parliamentarism.”
With Gregory Conti, Princeton University, author of “Parliament the Mirror of the Nation: Representation, Deliberation, and Democracy in Victorian Britain,”
and William Selinger, UCL, author of “Parliamentarism from Burke to Weber.”
In their respective monographs, Conti and Selinger re-establish parliamentarism—the ideal of a free state governed by representative assembly—as a central concept in 19th century European politics and chart its significance for contemporary debates about diversity, liberalism, and representation in modern democratic societies.
Giulia Oskian, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Yale, and Noah Rosenblum, Program Affiliate Scholar at the NYU School of Law and Ph.D. Candidate at Columbia University, will offer comments before opening the discussion for an audience Q&A.
Pre-circulated introductions are available for download here, and additional excerpts are available from the event organizers upon request.
