Expected results

The type of research proposed is qualitative, reflective, with ethnography as a methodological strategy. referring to the taxonomy of the different ethnographies made by werner and schoepfle (1987a), it will be inscribed within the particularist subtype. the particularistic ethnography emerges as a proposal by werner and schoepfle (1987a), who instead of applying ethnographic methods to the study of an entire culture, suggested that the current trend in anthropology is "to apply the ethnographic and holistic approach to any social unit or isolable human group "(boyle, 2003, 199).although particularistic ethnographies approach only small groups or parts of a culture, that focus is described holistically
