Monday October 15th — Whispers from the Dead: The Science of Human Identification

Date: Monday, October 15

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Place: The Donut Whole

1720 E. Douglas

Speaker: Peer H. Moore-Jansen

Professor of Anthropology

Wichita State University

“Within the archives of our skeletons are written down the intimate diaries of our lives… To read all of these things — that is the art of forensic anthropology.”—William Maples, former director of C. A. Pound Human Identification Laboratory

Prof. Moore-Jansen works in human osteology and forensic anthropology. He has a particular interest in the study of population variation in and among humans and how it can facilitate the identification of undocumented human skeletal remains in archaeological, historic and modern forensic (crime scene) contexts. He works with local, regional and state law enforcement in his capacity as a forensic anthropologist. Come join us to look into this fascinating field of research, ask questions, and enjoy the company of other science (and Cold Case) fans! And BTW, Happy Halloween!
