Title: Flag varieties and representations of p-adic groups
Abstract: Algebraic geometry has had a huge influence on representation theory for (nearly) the last century. I'll talk about some historical instances of this relationship and recent progress in translating our algebraic understanding of representations of p-adic groups to geometric contexts. I'll talk about how this fits into the picture of the Langlands program.
