Maartje van Gelder is working on early modern contentious politics and social unrest. Her project challenges Venice’s reputation for exceptional political serenity and argues that ordinary Venetians did shape politics in this aristocratic republic. However, their impact has been systematically “forgotten,” thus effectively removing them from the political stage.
