Critical Conversation: The Science of Crime Scene Investigation

TIFA’s most provocative conversation series returns, exploring thrilling new themes for MOTIVE audiences. Each day of the Festival, authors and experts will come together to examine a new facet of the culture and politics that shape the world around us and the books we read.
Crime scene investigation is one of the most fascinating aspects of crime storytelling, often sensationalized in books, television and film, yet also so often inaccurately portrayed. Learn how to filter the fact from the fiction, and discover how science and research play a vital role in many writers’ processes, in this insightful conversation about following evidence, and deciphering the true stories it tells.
Panelists Valerie Blackmore, Founder of Wyndham Forensic Group; Liam Hendrikse, registered expert in firearms and ballistics; and Nicole Novroski, Assistant Professor and Forensic Geneticist at the University of Toronto, will discuss the latest scientific advances in criminal investigations.
