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.
My first book with Pen and Sword, Wayward Women, full of all-new material and case studies, is now available on the publishers site here or via Amazon. My second book Criminal Women 1850-1920, full of case-studies, histories, and a ‘how-to’ research guide is also now available here.
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. Between 2014 and 2018 I worked as a post-doctoral research associate on the Digital Panopticon and uncovering even more fascinating stories of English female offenders both at home and abroad. I currently work on the ESRC Victims project charting the history of victims of crime over the last 300 years.
