I will survey different models of random hyperbolic surfaces of large genus, the analogies with random graphs that guides their study, and some of what is known. This will include my recent joint work with Mike Lipnowski (arXiv:2103.07496) that uses the Selberg trace formula and results of Mirzakhani to show the first eigenvalue of the Laplacian is typically large.
