Asymptotic representation theory is an important and quickly developing area of mathematics rich in connections to other fields, such as, e.g., probability, algebraic combinatorics, and mathematical physics. I will survey the basic ideas and results of asymptotic representation theory, mostly of symmetric groups, and then focus on some recent contributions.
