Abstract Bernstein, Frenkel, and Khovanov have constructed a categorification of tensor products of the standard representation of $\mathfrak {sl}_2$ , where they use singular blocks of category $\mathcal {O}$ for $\mathfrak {sl}_n$ and translation functors. Here we construct a positive characteristic analogue using blocks of representations of $\mathfrak {s}\mathfrak {l}_n$ over a field $\mathbf {k}$ of characteristic p with zero Frobenius character, and singular Harish-Chandra character. We show ..
