Abstract:
I will give an overview of some recent developments in moonshine including umbral moonshine and its connection to K3 surfaces and Niemeier lattices. I will then discuss a new form of moonshine related to skew-holomorphic Jacobi forms and discuss briefly some of the relations between these new moonshines and the original moonshine associated to the Monster sporadic group.
