There has long been a public fascination with crime, and a new digital archive from Gale, a part of Cengage Learning, brings more than 2 million pages of primary source material to support the study of nineteenth century history, literature, law and criminal justice. Crime, Punishment, and Popular Culture, 1790-1920 provides access to trial transcripts, police and forensic reports, criminal case files, detective agency records, detective novels, newspaper accounts, true crime literature and more to enhance the understanding of the intersection of law and society during a pivotal era of social change.

“Our strong relationships with leading institutions around the world, coupled with our advanced technology, have enabled us to bring a truly unique archive to both faculty and students that will support research on the fascinating topic of crime,” said Paul Gazzolo, senior vice president and general manager for Gale.

With content in more than eight languages, this unique, international collection helps researchers explore the causes and effects of the rise in crime during the Industrial Revolution, the development of metropolitan police departments, and the public’s fascination with increasingly sensational accounts of crime in newspapers and fiction. It covers changing attitudes about punishment and reform and more. Crime, Punishment, and Popular Culture, 1790-1920 helps users explore the links between fact and fiction by integrating legal and historical documents with literature, an emerging crime fiction genre, and newspaper reports.

Content for Crime, Punishment, and Popular Culture, 1790-1920 is sourced from the U.S. National Archives, the American Antiquarian Society, the U.K. National Archives, the British Library, the Library of Congress and more. The archive supports research in American studies, British studies, criminal justice, literature, and sociology, as well as digital humanities research as Gale is making the data behind the archive available for text and data mining.

The archive is available on the Gale Artemis: Primary Sources platform giving researchers the ability to cross-search with other digital archives and access to graphing and search visualization tools. Instructors using MindTap, Cengage Learning’s e-learning platform, can integrate materials from the archive directly into readings, quizzes, research projects, classroom discussions or other activities, driving collaboration between the library and classroom.
