The paper problematises the new conditions in which the humanities are operating, with special emphasis on the requirements imposed upon the institutional foundation and perception of disciplinary identity by the tendency of projectification. The analysis is more narrowly focused on the change in the perception and performative aspects of ethnology in the context of “project interdisciplinarity”. While in such a mosaic common field of various disciplinary claims and goals, it is primarily represented by the symbolic capital of its “famous” ethnographic method, the general ethnological insight, in final outcomes, often left deprived of the key disciplinary strongholds, together with the complex, although somewhat idealistic model of humanistic ethnography. Consequently, the trend leads to the reduction of the professional work of ethnologists to the “suppliers of material” for further analytical procedures and the later finalisation of the scientific product.
