Launch: Crime and Fiction in Forensic Science and History
Hear more about this new postgraduate course at the University of Dundee
In celebration of the new MLitt in Crime Writing and Forensic Investigation course, the School of Humanities invite you to join them and the team from the world-leading Centre for Anatomy & Human Identification (CAHID) for a seminar to look at Crime and Fiction in Forensic Science and History.
As well as introducing the new course, the event also welcomes Professor Ian Burney (Director of the Centre for the History of Science Technology and Medicine at the University of Manchester) to talk about his recent book Murder and the Making of English CSI, and Dr Nicholas Duvall (University of Edinburgh), who will respond to Professor Burney’s talk and discuss the Scottish perspective on crime and fiction.
The new MLitt in Crime Writing and Forensic Investigation course commences in September 2017, and is designed for anyone who has always wanted to write a crime novel, or who is working on a novel which requires expert insight into the workings of forensic scientists, the legal system or the police. By studying with our experts in creative writing and CAHID, students will be able to write knowledgeably and creatively about all aspects of crime and the law.
