**Abstract:** In this talk I will discuss a family of classical field theories in the Batalin--Vilkovisky formalism. These theories take as input n-symplectic Lie algebroids which correspond to symplectic manifolds, Poisson manifolds, and (higher) Courant algebroids. I will also discuss possible boundary conditions for these theories, e.g., Dirac structures and multiplectic structures. Finally, I will discuss aspects of the quantum theory in low dimensions.
