The Grassman Varieties are fundemental objects in mathematics. They have many aspects and arise in many contexts. I'll talk about their geometry: Schubert varieties, topology and intersections theory of Grassmanians, resolution of singularities for Schubert varieties. If there's time I'll describe how Grassmanians arise in Enumerative Geometry.
