In the first part of the talk, I will discuss a joint project with Chris Elliott on realizing the geometric Langlands correspondence as an instance of S-duality by careful analysis of Kapustin and Witten's work using derived algebraic geometry. In the second part of the talk, I will report on work in progress to produce new instances of Langlands duality in geometric representation theory through the lens of quantum field theory.
