Other Projects

Some online projects I've contributed to:





Madness - Two steps behind


Reviewer of books from Pickering & Chatto, erstwhile publishers of monographs and journals for the academic and wider communities. Titles discussed so far include Insanity and the Lunatic Asylum in the Nineteenth Century by Knowles and Trowbridge, The Science of History in Victorian Britain: Making the Past Speak by Ian Hesketh  and Institutionalizing the Insane in Nineteenth-Century England by Anna Shepherd. Find them all on my blog, Mad, Bad and Desperate - Crime and Insanity in Victorian England.

Judge, Jury…and Avoiding the Executioner - crime and insanity in Victorian England

Investigating the battles to escape the death penalty and the struggle of the Victorian alienists to get insanity considered as a defence in criminal trials.
