In this talk, I will discuss some recent progress on the study of holomorphic sectional curvature on compact Kahler manifolds. In the positively curved case, a goal is to understand what kind of manifolds can admit such a metric, and in the negatively curved case, one would like to understand the ampleness of the canonical line bundle, the Kodaira dimension, and the structure of such manifolds.
