DATE: September 15, 2018 Florida Chapter, Mystery Writers of America Luncheon Meeting
GUEST SPEAKER: Harriet Ottenheimer
PROGRAM: Forensic Linguistics: Language as Evidence
Program: The Unabomber case. Kurt Kobain’s suicide note. Russian cyber crimes. The Exxon Mobil disaster. Police interrogations. Plagiarism disputes. Forensic linguistics has played an important role in resolving these situations and more. A relatively new discipline, forensic linguistics has become an essential part of modern crime investigations. Forensic linguists analyze language evidence to assist law enforcement to solve crimes. In this talk, linguistic anthropologist Harriet Ottenheimer will discuss this new field. The presentation will be interactive, with real examples to analyze.
Speaker: Harriet Ottenheimer writes on language and culture for encyclopedias, magazines, and academic journals. Her analysis of the language of African scam letters is well-known in the cyber security community. She has also analyzed linguistic evidence for the U.S. Government. Her best-selling book, The Anthropology of Language, is now in its fourth edition. Her publications include a bilingual dictionary, a CD of African music, a documentary film, and a blues singer’s autobiography. Harriet earned her BA in literature from Bennington College and her Ph.D. in anthropology from Tulane University. She taught anthropology and ethnic studies at Kansas State University and on a Fulbright appointment to Charles University (in Prague). She is a past president of the Central States Anthropological Society and of the National Association for Ethnic Studies. Now “emerita” Harriet writes mystery novels featuring an amateur sleuth who analyzes language evidence to assist law enforcement to solve crimes.
