Everyday Life, Anthropology of

Löfgren, Orvar LU (2015) p.323-326
Abstract

The study of everyday life is an interdisciplinary field that stands for a special interest in the commonplace and the seemingly trivial routines and activities of daily life as well as a focus on ordinary people as creative actors rather than passive consumers or objects of domination. Like few other similar concepts, the study of everyday life has been used not only as a research perspective or analytical tool but also as a research ideology. The study of everyday life developed in the postwar period as an alternative to, or critique of, mainstream traditions in the social sciences, often with a focus on anthropological, ethnographic, and qualitative approaches.
