The Combined Royal Colleges Medal Lecture - by Professor Caroline Wilkinson

Clinical images are incredibly important for the analysis and assessment of living bodies, but they can also be utilised for forensic identification and archaeological investigation. This presentation will describe how clinical images contribute towards the depiction of faces from the past and from contemporary forensic investigation and discuss the challenges and limitations of this research.

The lecture will be given by Professor Caroline Wilkinson, Director of Liverpool School of Art & Design and Director of the Face Lab based in Liverpool John Moore’s University.


The lecture will be on Thursday 23rd November 18:00-21:00 at the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists.
