Title: Manifold Calculus for Spaces
Speaker: Cary Malkiewich (Stanford) 
Abstract: We will describe how to generalize the "embedding
calculus"  of Weiss and Goodwillie, from functors on
manifolds and embeddings to functors on all spaces. The
universal n-excisive approximation can be described as a
homotopy Kan extension, and given very explicitly. We'll
also cover an application of this theory to string topology,
which answers a question posed by Ralph Cohen.
You are cordially invited!
