Professor Pell Speaks at Biotech Without Borders
Professor Rich Pell will discuss the Center for PostNatural History and about unusual specimens that teeter the edge of natural history at Biotech Without Borders in Brooklyn on November 2.
Professor Pell will revisit some historic examples of specimens that were exposed as hoaxes as well as actual ones that were suspected of being fakes. These specimens serve as powerful metaphor for the false positives that always lurk on the edge of science. Each reminds us of the difference between what we know, and what we would like to be true.
