Dr. Richard Feinberg Gives Presentation on Anthropology and the Study of Navigation at Harvard

On November 14, 2014, Dr. Richard Feinberg presented an invited talk on “Anthropology and the Study of Navigation” at Harvard University’s annual Radcliffe Institute Science Symposium. The symposium, titled “Lost & Found,” was an interdisciplinary and international exploration of both human and animal navigation. Other presenters included: Eleanor Maguire (Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London); Yasser Roudi (Professor, Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience and the Centre for Neural Computation, Norwegian University of Science and Technology), Susanne Åkesson (Professor and Principal Investigator, Centre for Animal Movement Research, Lund University [Sweden]), Robert Koester (Technical Instructor, Virginia Department of Emergency Management; Visiting Fellow, Kingston University [United Kingdom]), and George Hobbs (Research Scientist, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization [Australia]). Dr. Feinberg's own contribution focused on Pacific Islanders’ systems of non-instrument long-distance navigation across the open sea.
