Title:  Surface bundles over surfaces

Abstract:  The goal of this talk will be to survey the theory of surface bundles over surfaces. This topic connects to areas from algebraic geometry to combinatorial group theory to Teichmuller theory. This largely unexplored subject has many open questions, some of which will be presented in this talk.
