Title: An extension of the generalized Blakers-Massey theorems with applications to the topology of manifolds

Abstract: This talk will celebrate my final mathematical work with Bruce Williams, who passed away in early 2018.  I will describe a generalization of the Blakers-Massey theorem for strongly cocartesian n-cubes of spaces. I will then explain some applications of this result to disjunction and linking problems.
