What is an ethnography?

In simple words – without citing any particular author – it is a branch of anthropology, a method of study or direct research that aims to observe and record cultural practices and social behaviors, decisions and actions of different human groups, that is, their identity and their lifestyles.

This study is carried out through conversations and interviews with these groups, as well as by recording photographs and videos.

Ethnography organizes and describes in detail the histories, customs, traditions, myths, beliefs, language, genealogies, practices, etc, of the different races, human groups, cultures or peoples of the world.

To do this, it mainly uses a qualitative method, rather than the quantitative one.
