There will be a tea before the talk at 3pm in the 4th Floor Math Lounge. This program is made possible by a grant from the Fund to Encourage Women (FEW) of the Trustees' Council of Penn Women.

In this talk I will introduce the moduli space of curves and a class of vector bundles on it. I’ll discuss how these bundles, which have connections to algebraic geometry, representation theory, and mathematical physics, tell us about the moduli space of curves, and vice versa, focusing on just a few recent results and open problems.
