# Model Theory for Modular Invariants. Helsinki, 5/15

During the *Helsinki Model Theory Days* (**University of Helsinki, Mathematics Department**) in May 2015 I gave the lecture Model Theory for Modular Invariants.

# Grasping smoothly and letting go: categoricity and location. Helsinki, 5/15

The **Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Study** invited me to give a lecture in the interdisciplinary meeting *Getting There and Falling Short*, where a number of art historians, linguists, mathematicians, philosophers, artists, etc. were invited to reflect on language’s ability of grasping concepts and its own shortcomings. My lecture (Grasping smoothly and letting go: categoricity and location) focused on categoricity and the problem of *location*.
