Jackiw-Teitelboim gravity and the Schwarzian

We derive Schwarzian correlation functions using the BF formulation of Jackiw-Teitelboim gravity, where bilocal operators are interpreted as boundary-anchored Wilson lines in the bulk. Crossing Wilson lines are associated with OTO-correlators and give rise to 6j-symbols. We discuss the semi-classical bulk black hole physics contained within the correlation functions.

Extensions including bulk defects related to the other coadjoint orbits are discussed.
