This talk is an introduction to unoriented topological field theory. I will give an overview of known examples and highlight some open problems. I will also describe a new class of examples, namely unoriented extensions of twisted Dijkgraaf-Witten theory, and the resulting topological interpretation of the character theory of categorical representations.
