This evening will delve into the fascinating world of Forensic Linguistics. Join Professor Grant and Dr Grieve as they explain what Forensic Linguistics is, and how it is applied by the staff to help ascertain the author of texts. Their work has been used both to help solve historical cases and more recent murder investigations. Please note this event is wheelchair accessible.

Cracking Criminal and Historical Cases of Disputed Authorship

Dr Jack Grieve (Senior Lecturer in Forensic Linguistics, Aston University)
Professor Tim Grant (Professor of Forensic Linguistics, Aston University)
In these talks, Tim Grant and Jack Grieve from the Centre for Forensic Linguistics at Aston University will discuss how they attribute texts of disputed provenance through the analysis of authorial style. Examples will be drawn from high profile cases they have worked on -- from recent murder investigations to mysteries of historical significance.
