Criminal Justice in Mid/Late Victorian England

The dissertation paper is about to what extent did class help shape the understandings of the ‘Criminal Class’ in Victorian London. This includes the first chapter to be about ‘poverty and charity’, the second chapter to be about ‘defining the issues of the criminal class and social reform in the criminal justice system’, and the third chapter to be about ‘reforming punishment and London’s Metropolitan Police Force’. With using sources from the Old Bailey Proceedings and accounts of contemporaries such as Henry Mayhew, Charles Booth etc., the piece will focus on the growing association of ideas between the labouring poor and what Chadwick termed the criminal class to explore how such representations affected poor relief during the period.
