Rippercast: The Whitechapel Murders Podcast
The Whitechapel Society presents: A forensic linguistic analysis of the Ripper letters with Dr Andrea Nini
August 29th, 2021
Duration: 01:02:02

We are pleased to bring to you the August 2021 guest speaker at the Whitechapel Society:

Dr Andrea Nini- A forensic linguistic analysis of the Jack the Ripper letters

Dr Andrea Nini is a Senior Lecturer and Associate Professor in Linguistics and English Language at the University of Manchester. In 2018, Dr. Nini published An Authorship analysis of the Jack the Ripper letters in Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, in which he analyzed 209 letters and postcards sent to police and newspapers that claimed to have been written by ‘Jack the Ripper’ and concluded that several were journalistic hoaxes, supporting the claims made by Sir Robert Anderson, Melville Macnaughten and Detective Chief Inspector Littlechild.
