The thermodynamics of macroscopic and weakly-correlated systems has been extensively studied and is well-understood. However, with technological progress pushing into more extreme quantum regimes where exotic effects often dominate, there is increasing foundational interest to understand how thermodynamic laws are modified or extended in such regimes. I shall talk about on-going work that aims to provide a unified account of coherence and entanglement within thermodynamics, and discuss the limitations of more traditional approaches, such as fluctuation theorems. This line of work also suggests striking connections with the theory of entanglement and recently developed ideas on asymmetry.
