    TITLE: From world-sheet supersymmetry to super target spaces

    ABSTRACT: In this talk we will give an introduction to non-linear sigma models with world-sheet supersymmetry and WZNW models with supergroups as target spaces. We will see how these models are related by twisting and discuss the consequences for string theory on AdS_3 x S^3 x T^4.
