# Ivan di Liberti: Pre-colloquium — What are sheaves and how come we started caring?

**Time: **
Wed 2022-08-31 14.15 - 15.00

**Location: **
Albanova, FB55

**Participating: **
Ivan di Liberti (Stockholm University)

The talk will be a very soft and historical introduction to the notion of sheaves over a topological space and over a locale. Time permitting we will introduce some bits and some intuition about the Grothendieck construction and its relation with étale spaces.

This is a pre-colloquium targeted towards master and PhD students as a preparation for Olivia Caramello's colloquium talk at 15:15.
