This talk is open to the public and may be podcast
This paper explores the causes and consequences of the growth of public engagement with parliament in the early eighteenth century. Through exploring some 8000 petitions, it considers who this public was, how they were mobilised, and how the associated rise of lying, misrepresentation and participation of the “ruder sorts” was sought to be managed to ensure that politics remained rational and deliberative.
