  • Whitechapel Society Speakers

    Another list that I'm making is the speakers at the Whitechael Society. Since some of the talks have become available as podcasts (many thanks for these!), I thought that a comprehensive list should be made for Posterity. Again, my only sources have been the Rippercasts, and these boards.

    These are the ones that I have so far:

          The August 2017 Whitechapel Society meeting was a paired event with the East End Conference and their keynote speaker Charlotte Mallinson 'In the Name of Jack: Rethinking Victimhood in Representations of the Whitechapel Murders'.

          I'll see if I can fill in some more gaps in your list.

          Happy New Year,
