Event Details

From the mass graves in Kosovo to the ravages of the Asian Tsunami and the search for a child missing for nearly 40 years – Professor Dame Sue Black has been at the forefront of investigations that assist the police to locate bodies, identify the deceased, bring perpetrators to justice and closure to families.

The talk will address some of the extensive range of case work in which Sue has been involved and will focus in particular in areas where her research at Lancaster will be used by police to address the most heinous of all crimes against our most vulnerable in society.

Book signing

Copies of Professor Black's latest book All That Remains: A Life in Death will be available to buy and you will have the opportunity to have it signed by Professor Black after the talk!

About Professor Black

One of the world's leading forensic scientists, Professor Dame Sue Black took up the newly-created post of Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Engagement at Lancaster University in August 2018. She leads on developing the University’s embedded culture of working with communities at a local, regional, national and international level.Sue’s upbeat perspective on life ensures that this public lecture will not only be informative and thought provoking, but she will also make sure it is entertaining. Her career requires her to be an engaged communicator whether to the courts, the public, police, government and she has extended this to appearances on TV and radio. It is therefore logical that she is Lancaster University’s first Pro Vice-Chancellor for Engagement.
