Decomposable Specht modules

I will give a brief survey of the study of decomposable Specht modules for the symmetric group and its Hecke algebra, which includes results of Murphy, Dodge and Fayers, and myself. I will then report on an ongoing project with Louise Sutton, in which we are studying decomposable Specht modules for the Hecke algebra of type $B$ indexed by `bihooks’.
