Royal Institution – Identity, anatomy and the forensic conundrum (Discourse)

When: 22nd Feb, 7:20pm

 

Where: The Theatre

 

Info:

At the core of ‘self’ is the unshakeable certainty of identity. Yet, when challenged, it can prove to be a fragile and fugacious construct. Whilst we may think we know who we are, others are also interested in whether we are who we say we are, and whether who we say we are is who we have always been. However, the personal certainty of identity can often lie in stark contrast to the probability of identity as established by the forensic investigator. Sue M Black will examine how our life’s history can be written into our anatomy and how the forensic anthropologist must learn the language of the biological code to uncover the clues and ultimately reunite the person with their identity.
