  • Jack the Ripper Conference: 130th Anniversary 2018 - LONDON

  • #2
    Thanks for posting How

    Yes Autumn is Coming .... but are you ready ?

    The 130th Anniversary Jack the Ripper Conference in 2018 will take a new direction and be very different from what we have seen before.

    In 2018 we will also be making the conferences affordable for all budgets and delivering for the first time a new way to book the weekend events.


    After 2018 the Jack the Ripper conference will be hosted on the same day each year in London's East End and at the same Venue. This will make it easier for many to plan well ahead in advance and make time to arrange for that particular weekend off. We hope this will turn into a proper annual meet up of Ripperologists from across the world both academically and socially.

    Conferences outside London will be hosted by H division Crime Club and will focus on General true crime from across the world.

    News of LONDON 2018 #130years. Will be announced soon

    Many thanks

                JACK THE RIPPER CONFERENCE: 130th Anniverary 1888 - 2018 - LONDON
                The Double Event 29th & 30th September 2018

                Pleased to report that the BIG 130th Conference will be held at the ARBOR CITY HOTEL IN LONDON , situated in the centre of Jack the Ripper's London in Osborn Street.

                MARTIN FIDO & PROF DAVID WILSON have both been confirmed.

                Many of you will be more than familair with Osborn Street as its the site of the Emma Smith attack on 3rd April 1888 , leading onto the Whitechapel murders.

                In the next street over you have Gunthorpe Street and at the End of Osborn street you have Brick lane with the Frying pan pub , last known watering hole of Mary Ann Nichols the night she died and ofcourse just a bit further down is Hanbury Street where Annie Chapman was murdered.

                Looking at the map of each of the Canonical five victims you can clearly see Osborn street is pretty much the central Location.

                For the 130th Anniversary we could be in no better place.

                Hope to see you there.

                *Please Note the different pricing stuctures (to suit everyones budget) is in place for each day and event. VIP tickets for the whole weekend are ready to purchase now but only 50 will be made avaialble. After they are sold only day tickets and dinner tickets will be available.

                          August 27, 2017

                          The Jack the Ripper Conference London 2018 is proud to present :

                          DR KATHERINE RAMSLAND

                          Dr. Katherine Ramsland teaches forensic psychology at DeSales University in Pennsylvania. She has published over 1,000 articles, stories, blogs, and reviews, and 60 books, including Confession of a Serial Killer: The Untold Story of Dennis Rader, The Mind of a Murderer: Privileged Access to the Demons That Drive Extreme Violence, The Forensic Science of CSI, Inside the Minds of Serial Killers, The Human Predator: A Historical Chronicle of Serial Murder and Forensic Investigation, The Forensic Psychology of Criminal Minds, Beating the Devil's Game: A History of Forensic Science and Criminal Investigation, The Sex Beast, The Devil’s Dozen, The CSI Effect, and The Criminal Mind: A Writers' Guide to Forensic Psychology.

                          Her book, Psychopath, was a #1 bestseller on the Wall Street Journal’s list.

                          Additionally, she has written books on the vampire subculture, including The Science of Vampires, The Heat Seekers, and Piercing the Darkness: Undercover with Vampires in America Today. She has published biographies of Anne Rice and Dean Koontz, as well as two books about writing, and has been translated into 12 languages.

                          Her background in forensic studies positioned her to assist former FBI profiler John Douglas on The Cases That Haunt Us and to co-write a book with former FBI profiler Gregg McCrary, The Unknown Darkness.

                          She also co-wrote The Real Life of a Forensic Scientist with renowned criminalist Henry C. Lee and A Voice for the Dead with James E. Starrs (for which she served on an exhumation team).

                          Ramsland’s most recent books are The Ripper Letter, a supernatural erotic thriller based on Jack the Ripper lore; a textbook, Forensic Investigation: Methods from Experts (2017); and a book for consultants, The Psychology of Death Investigations (forthcoming).

                          She is at work on Track the Ripper, the second novel in her Hearts of Darkness series.
                          Ramsland presents workshops to law enforcement, psychologists, coroners, judges, and attorneys, and has consulted for CSI and Bones.

                          She speaks internationally about forensic psychology, forensic science, and serial murder, and has appeared on numerous crime documentaries.

                          She writes a regular blog for Psychology Today called “Shadow-boxing.”
