Missing and Murdered in New York City with Professor Alan G. Morris on June 19th, 2013

Do you watch popular television shows like CSI or Bones with interest yet wonder what it’s really like to be a forensic anthropologist? Professor Alan G. Morris from the UCT Department of Human Biology will share news from the University and speak on the topic of “Crime, Evidence & Science: Developing Forensic Anthropology in South Africa”.

His recently published book, Missing and Murdered, describes a series of fascinating forensic cases. Kathy Reichs, fellow author and inspiration for Bones describes the book as “a gripping read…it proves that forensic anthropology is flourishing in southern Africa.”

The Universities of Cape Town, Witwatersrand and Pretoria each have active departments where forensic anthropology is taught, but Cape Town has taken the lead in launching a new MSc in Biomedical Forensic Science. Forensic anthropology is embedded in this new MSc course and this talk will outline some of the advances that UCT is making and some of the exciting investigations that it has been involved in over the years.

Join us for light refreshments and a lively conversation on this fascinating topic. Copies of Professor Morris’ book will be available for purchase.
