Dr. Clyde Snow Visiting Lecture on Forensic Anthropology in Guatemala

4:00 PM

Location
Dinwiddie Hall
Room 204
Tulane University

Forensic anthropologist Dr. Clyde Snow is visiting New Orleans this week, and has kindly offered to give a talk at Tulane tomorrow afternoon (Tuesday, October 19th) at 4:00 PM in Dinwiddie Hall, Room 305.

Clyde Collins Snow is one of the most distinguished forensic anthropologists in the field today. A pioneer in demonstrating the contribution of forensic anthropology to the investigation of human rights violations and the prosecution of war crimes, over the past twenty-five years Dr. Snow has assisted in human rights investigations in eighteen countries. Recognizing the importance of developing professionals in the field, he has trained teams of forensic anthropologists in Argentina, Chile, Peru and Guatemala in methods for the proper excavation and analysis of human remains from mass graves and other clandestine contexts. On Tuesday, Dr. Snow will speak about one of his recent projects attempting to identify victims of human rights violations who were buried as unknowns (‘€œX.X.‘€) in urban cemeteries in Guatemala between 1977 and 1986. His talk will be held in the MARI Conference Room (Room 305), Dinwiddie Hall.
