Configuration spaces are tools to study manifolds “a few points at a time” and their homology can capture more information than the homology of a space itself. I will defend this claim by focusing on how the homology of configuration spaces of surfaces viewed as representations of the surface mapping class group “sees deeper into” the mapping class group than does the homology of the surface. We will see two approaches for doing this: one more algebraic, through mapping spaces, and one more constructive and pictorial.
