Speaker: Mihran Papikian, Penn State

Abstract: This is an expository talk on certain aspects of the Langlands program - a sprawling web of conjectures and theorems linking number theory, representation theory and algebraic geometry. Specifically, we will discuss the role of modular varieties in the proofs of some of Langlands conjectures.
