New York University will host “Seeing Octopuses,” a webinar that will explore what we know about octopuses as well as what we can learn from them, on Mon., Feb. 1, 9:30-10:30 a.m. EST.
Even if you haven’t come across an octopus in real life, chances are you have seen one. What are we learning from real-world encounters and footage of octopuses? What do they mean for individual octopuses and as a species? The Feb. 1 panel will consider these eight-limbed mollusks from scientific, historical, educational, and even philosophical perspectives.
“Seeing Octopuses” will feature Pippa Ehrlich, co-director of the Netflix documentary “My Octopus Teacher”, Harvard University’s Peter Galison, Adi Khen, a researcher at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and the University of Sydney’s Peter Godfrey-Smith.
