WaywardWomen was set up to present the research and all round ramblings of the PhD project I completed at the University of Liverpool, between 2010 – 2014, which examined the lives of Victorian England’s female offenders. Posts began as a mix of the case-studies and comparisons that constitute my research, as well as some great stories of the who, what and why of Victorian crime.
As a researcher I am interested in the social history of the 19th and 20th centuries, family history and genealogy, life-narrative research, and a range of modern sociological and criminological issues. I currently work as a post-doctoral research associate on the Digital Panopticon and I’m hoping to uncover even more fascinating stories of English female offenders both at home and abroad.
