# Zabrodsky Lecture 1: Geometry of the moduli space of curves

## Lecturer:

Rahul Pandharipande (ETH Zurich)

2:30pm to 3:30pm

## Location:

Manchester House, Lecture Hall 2

The moduli space of curves, first appearing in the work of Riemann in the 19th century, plays an important role in geometry. After an introduction to the moduli space, I will discuss recent directions in the study of tautological classes on the moduli space following ideas and conjectures of Mumford, Faber-Zagier, and Pixton. Cohomological Field Theories (CohFTs) play an important role. Read more about Zabrodsky Lecture 1: Geometry of the moduli space of curves
