Ethnology is the study of the everyday life of people. Everyday life and its routines are thought to reflect profound, both short- and long-term, cultural structures and thought patterns. Ethnologists study, among other things, a wide range of temporal strata, continua and revolutions, as well as contemporary cultural processes. Research may be focused on work, hobbies, objects or places. They may be examined from the perspective of ethnicity, gender or age, as well as in the dimensions of the past, the present and, in part, the future.
