Spin geometry in Kac-Moody theory:  In this expository lecture we concisely introduce spin manifolds and investigate their appearance in the literature along with their connections to other branches of mathematics. Then very briefly explain the general idea of a symmetric space obtained from a split Kac-Moody group and how one can develop spin geometry in this context.
