I will speak about both abstract Schur-Weyl duality from a categorical viewpoint as well as the concrete case for the symmetric groups and general linear groups. The concrete case says roughly that there is a one to one correspondence between irreducible finite dimensional representations of the symmetric groups and irreducible finite dimensional polynomial representations of the general linear groups. Time admitting, I may point out some connections with symmetric functions and polynomials.
