Abstract: We construct a resolution of irreducible complex representations of the symmetric group $S_n$ by restrictions of representations of $GL_n(\mathbb {C})$ (where $S_n$ is the subgroup of permutation matrices). This categorifies a recent result of Assaf and Speyer. Our construction also gives projective resolutions of simple $\mathcal {F}$-modules (here $\mathcal {F}$ is the category of finite sets).
