Abstract / Description

The forensic anthropologist Clyde Snow talked about human bones as always telling the truth, and of his work as simply giving voice to them. The only object who does not lie, according to Snow, is the object. This ideal ventriloquism is presented as scientific truth and as such it is almost unquestionable. Is this 'objectual turn' in forensic humanities an attempt to use the same strategy?
