November 18 - Forensic Science Unearthed: Exploring Crime Scene and Laboratory Casework with a UWF Forensic Anthropologist

November 18, join the UWF College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities for this virtual installment of the Experience UWF Downtown Lecture Series with Dr. Allysha Winburn, UWF forensic anthropologist and professor of anthropology.

When human remains are skeletonized, decomposed, burned, buried, or otherwise altered, forensic anthropologists can prove vital to the process of death investigation. Forensic anthropology is the application of human skeletal and dental expertise to investigations of personal identity and circumstances of death. Forensic anthropologists perform many roles, including undertaking skeletal analyses for medical examiners, assisting with law enforcement crime scene recoveries, and conducting archaeological excavations in various human rights, humanitarian, and post-conflict contexts. A practicing forensic anthropologist for over 15 years, UWF assistant professor Allysha Winburn has worked in many of these settings. In this unique Downtown Lecture, we will enter the lab, field, and crime scene with Dr. Winburn as she shares her diverse experiences in this rewarding and challenging profession.

Join us Thursday, November 18, from 6-7 p.m. for this virtual experience. The lecture is free, but registration is required in advance.
