Classical Teichmueller space parametrizes complex structures on a Riemann surface of genus g>1. Recently several generalized Teichmueller spaces have been defined and studied by very different approaches. Nevertheless, some of the results are strikingly similar. In this talk I will review some aspects of Teichmueller space, introduce its generalizations and discuss their properties.
