From a complex analytic perspective, Teichmüller spaces and symmetric spaces can be realised as contractible bounded domains, which have several features in common but also exhibit many differences. In this talk we will study isometric maps between these two important classes of bounded domains equipped with their intrinsic Kobayashi metric.
