Model Theory Seminar: Model theory of the j function

There has been a lot of work in model theory devoted to studying exponential fields, which has produced many important results in the area. Inspired by this, I will present some model-theoretic approaches to the j function (from the theory of elliptic curves), and I will also present various results which mirror some of those in exponential fields.
