The Partition, Brauer and Temperley-Lieb categories and various associated diagram algebras are well-studied objects originating from different parts of mathematics and physics. Inspired by geometrical, representation theorectic and physical reasons, we will look into an "interpolation" of algebras and categories which lie between the Temeperley-Lieb and Brauer. No prior knowledge of these objects required; but a non-disliking of partitions and pictures would be helpful. This is based on joint work with Zoltan Kadar and Paul Martin.
