Alex offers a short introduction to investigative journalism—in particular, its beginnings in the 19th century. After a sketch of English journalistic history through the 1850s, he examines Dickens’s “On Duty with Inspector Field” (1851) and Henry Mayhew’s London Labour and the London Poor (1861–62), two early examples of investigative journalism, focusing on these journalists' intermingling of fictional and non-fictional reportage and their negotiation of disparate professional discourses.
