Title:  Integral and quantum Deligne categories

Abstract:   I will review a construction due to Deligne of certain universal tensor categories over the complex numbers which are closely related to stability phenomena in the representation theory of symmetric and general linear groups. I will then discuss a construction of certain integral forms of these categories, which reduce well modulo primes and give insight into the asymptotic behavior of the modular representation theory of these groups. Finally, I will discuss some ongoing progress toward generalizing these results in the setting of quantum groups and Iwahori-Hecke algebras.
