Gastil, Dzur, and Miller on Juries as Civic Spaces (video)

John Gastil, Albert Dzur, and Joshua Miller discuss jury deliberation in the U.S., in a new video, entitled Juries as Civic Spaces.

Here are excerpts from Professor Gastil’s post about the video, at The Jury and Democracy:

Joshua Miller of Morgan State University recently recorded a discussion he orchestrated via GoogleHangout with political scientist Albert Dzur and me (John Gastil).

The interview… runs about 23 minutes and gives you some insight into what Albert and I have been studying, vis-à-vis juries. Tune in for our thoughts on the decline of juries, the structure of American jurisprudence, and the civic role of the jury. My favorite part is where Albert shows I’ve strayed (usefully) away from Tocqueville’s conception of the jury.[…]

For more details, please see Professor Gastil’s post and the complete video.
