    About Jade Shepherd

    I’m a historian of Victorian asylums, crime, masculinity and psychiatry. I completed my Ph.D at Queen Mary University of London in 2013, where I also taught history for five years. My thesis, ‘Victorian Madmen: Broadmoor, Masculinity and the Experiences of the Criminally Insane 1863-1900’, examined the crimes, trials and asylum experiences of men committed into Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum. I’m currently working on my first monograph, Broadmoor’s Men: Masculinity, Class and the Victorian Criminal Lunatic Asylum, and a number of small research projects: feigning insanity in Victorian prisons and asylums; wrongful confinement in county and criminal asylums; family life and the Victorian criminal asylum; and the treatment of the ‘criminal’ in Victorian prisons and asylums.
