This evening Daniel Grey explores a child murder trial in London during the First World War, and examines how the case variously raised - and silenced - questions about drug addiction, 'respectability' and children's nursing in early 20th-century England.
A lecturer in world history since 1800, Daniel has published widely on his research interests, which include social, cultural, legal and medical history of Britain and India during the 19th and 20th Centuries. He is currently writing a book entitled, Degrees of Guilt: Infanticide in England 1860-1960, which reflects his interests in gender, law, medicine, and culture since 1800.
