Abstract
This is a summary of lectures in superstring cosmology given by the author at the CORFU 2009 School and Workshops "Theory  Cosmology  Phenomenology", Corfu Institute, Greece, Sept 613, 2009. These lectures are based on some recent developments and ideas, in the framework of superstring theory, concerning the evolution and structure of the universe in (i) the very early "nongeometric"' cosmological era, (ii) the intermediate "radiationlike" era and (iii) the late time cosmological era characterized by the electroweak phase transition.
