The Giant Squid – Legend and Reality: At the Interface Between Folklore and Science

Dr. Anna Guigne will use a variety of media to survey stories of the giant squid from the time of Homer up to the 21st century. She’ll look at current knowledge of this large cephalopod and the approaches to its study, and she’ll consider how such knowledge, scientific or otherwise, has taken on legendary proportions.
