The paper written by Saulė Matulevičienė features opinions of people working for different Lithuanian academic and research institutions. They discuss the subject and results of the recent ethnographical field research. The author presents the whole spectre of areas and topics that occupy the researchers and briefly introduces a number of field research methodologies. The interlocutors share their advice as to how best prepare for a professional ethnographical expedition. Practical issues such as the best number of members of an expedition, its duration, the relationships between the researcher and the subject, as well as dealing with the research material are all addressed, too. All the interlocutors believe that field research remains topical and meaningful in the 21st century, whereas the changing reality provides researchers with new challenges and tasks. The interlocutors, who are authors of numerous texts in the field of ethnology, share their valuable experience with the readers.
