Title: Galaxies lacking dark matter"
Abstract: In 2018 we identified a diffuse galaxy with very little dark matter and a population of strange, luminous globular clusters. Three years and a lot of controversy later the mystery has only deepened. I will present the latest findings from extremely deep Hubble images as well as new data from the Dragonfly Telephoto Array, and also touch on the implications for galaxy formation and the nature of dark matter. The talk will end with a preview of upcoming surveys and upgrades of the Dragonfly telescope
