New N=1 dualities from orientifold transitions

I will discuss a recently found class of N=1 dual theories, which
inherit their duality from SL(2,Z) duality of type IIB string theory. They
are engineered from orientifold planes and branes wrapping
vanishing cycles. I will focus on the string theory interpretation of the
duality, giving an interpretation of various features of the duality from
microscopic string theory considerations.
