Abstract: Chiral/factorization homology gives a procedure for constructing a topological field theory from the data of an E_n algebra. I'll explain a mulit-object version of this construction which produces a topological field theory from the data of an n-category with adjoints.

This construction is a consequence of a more primitive result which asserts an
equivalence between n-categories with adjoints and ``transversality sheaves'' on framed n manifolds - of which there is an abundance of examples.

This work is joint with Nick Rozenblyum.
