In this talk we will introduce the basic notion of stability of vector bundles on curves and how it can be approached by degenerating the curve. We'll then apply this to the bundle that controls the deformation theory of a curve embedded in projective space: the normal bundle. This is joint work with Izzet Coskun and Eric Larson.
