Abstract: Our focus is on the topology of spaces of knots. In this language, classical knot theory is concerned with understanding the connected components of the space of knots in R^3. In thinking about spaces of knots more generally, we in some sense classify families of knots. In our approach, as well as many other recent developments in knot theory, compactifications of configuration spaces play an important role. About half of our talk will focus on the beautiful geometry of these compactifications.
