Resume: The review presents the results of a round-table discussion held the 16th of December 2013 at Lomonosov Moscow State University, dedicated to the question of the future development of the university’s Department of Ethnology at the Faculty of History. Directors of various leading anthropological institutes of Moscow, the professorial staff of the department, and foreign colleagues were invited to partake in this discussion. The group successfully addressed and put forward a number of measures to optimize the resolution of the problems of developing the scientific and educational constituents of the department's activities. Members of the round table, according to the academic background of their own scientific formation, discussed the experiences of historical, ethnological, physico-anthropological studies, and the socio-anthropological and educational paradigm overall. The article’s material reflects the country’s multifaceted approaches to understanding and developing the discipline of “Ethnology” and will be of use not only to the faculty members and students of the MSU Department of Ethnology, but will certainly arise the interest of the general reader, interested in the state of Russian humanities.
