"Ethnology is characterised by a focus on processes, but also by a holistic perspective in which sociality, subjectivity and materiality are inseparable dimensions. Ethnology views its own history and theory reflectively as an integrated part of the realities it seeks to grasp. At the core of the ethnological endeavour is the investigation of the diverse and shifting ways in which practises of cultural history interact with other forms of practice as well as the ways in which the fields of study, the terms and categories of ethnology itself are formed and transformed. An ethnological culture analysis is therefore inextricably bound up with self-reflection as to its own scholarly practice."
