Differential forms provide a modern view of calculus. They also give you a start with algebraic topology in the sense that one can extract topological information about a manifold from its space of differential forms. It is called cohomology.

The Geometry of Iterated Loop SpacesThe Geometry of Iterated Loop Spaces
by J. P. May - Springer
A paper devoted to the study of iterated loop spaces. Our goal is to develop a simple and coherent theory which encompasses most of the known results about such spaces. We begin with some history and a description of the desiderata of such a theory.
