Irreducible Specht modules for symmetric groups

In the modular representation theory of groups, it is
interesting to know which ordinary irreducibles remain
irreducible modulo a prime p. For the symmetric groups, this
problem has recently been solved by the speaker, building on
work of James/Mathas and Lyle. In the seminar, I shall outline
the proof.
