Generalized concepts of symmetry are useful tools for constraining the  dynamics of quantum field theories.  In these talks I will review the notion of higher-form global symmetry and explain some of the ways in which these generalized concepts of symmetry interplay with ordinary global symmetry.  I will also apply these ideas to several concrete QFTs.
