This year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Bill Bass, professor emeritus of anthropology from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Bass and his students built the Anthropology Research Facility at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville – more popularly known as the Body Farm – and began work with donated bodies in 1981. The facility is home to research on the effects of weather, water, trauma and numerous kinds of burial, along with changes to the bodies themselves. Bass’s work has revolutionized forensic science – particularly for determining the time since a person’s death – and inspired several television dramas.
