Research to study the myriad of "urban characters", basically describing and comparing ethnicity, or rather multiethnicity, the diversity of peoples.
"The relation between ethnology and ethnography on the one hand and anthropology on the other is complicated. ...anthropology was elevated to the status of an umbrella science, ethnography and ethnology are now often considered subfields of (general) anthropology. In all cases the aim was to study peoples and nations (ethnos, in Greek; gens, in Latin) in whatever way these human groups should be defined, rather than the “manners and customs” that are usually regarded as the object of premodern sociocultural anthropology.".
"...ethnological perspective, a way of thinking in terms of peoples (Völker)."
"The object of ethnology that is not "the people" or "The ethnic", but the diversity of peoples, the plurality of peoples, of all peoples ".
"...ethnographerʹs primary goal of learning the world of his or her host community from the perspectives of its members. As Malinowski pointed out more than 80 years ago, the goal of ethnography is “to grasp the native’s point of view…to realize his vision of the world” (1922:25). Moreover, as suggested by Guba and Lincoln (1997:198), the various hypotheses, theories, and interpretive frameworks brought by outside investigators “may have little or no meaning within the emic view of studied individuals, groups, societies, or cultures."
