Abstract
This paper focuses on providing an overview of the theory surrounding kinship terminology. Due to a lack of space, the focus is placed on providing an overview of a number of selected contemporary kinship research. Its goal is to familiarize the reader with the research history and the complex processes that shaped the study itself. It does so by providing the reader with an insight into the early research of kinship, as well as gradually discussing the developments which led towards its contemporary form. In an attempt to present these issues with clarity, the paper has been divided into a number of sections. The introduction offers the essential knowledge on kinship study and its beginnings, with a focus on explaining the historically dominant paradigm. The following part focuses mostly on the important work of David M. Schneider and his contemporaries in what later became known as the time when kinship study underwent profound changes. This part also acts as an introduction to the more recent research, with an emphasis on the role of gender study in defining kinship. Lastly, the final part of the paper focuses on explaining the results of the recent research and its meaning for the future of kinship studies.

Parallel abstract (Croatian)
Ovaj rad pruža pregled suvremenih istraživanja na području srodstva. Cilj samoga rada je upoznati čitatelja s poviješću istraživanja srodstva i kompleksnim procesima koji su ga uvjetovali. Kako bi se to postiglo, pruža se uvid u ranija istraživanja, isto kao i u postupni razvoj koji je doveo do suvremenih definicija srodstva. Kako bi se ovi problemi predstavili sa što većom jasnoćom, rad je podijeljen na više dijelova. U uvodnom dijelu govori se o temeljnim saznanjima na području srodstva, kao i o njegovim početcima, s naglaskom na objašnjenje povijesno prevladavajuće paradigme. U idućem dijelu se govori o važnosti rada Davida M. Schneidera i njegovih suvremenika u onome što je kasnije postalo poznato kao vrijeme temeljnih promjena na području srodstva. Ovaj dio će također poslužiti kao uvod u suvremenija istraživanja, s naglaskom na ulogu rodnih studija u određivanju definicije srodstva. Naposljetku, zadnji dio rada je posvećen rezultatima suvremenih istraživanja i njihovom značenju za budućnost istraživanja srodstva.
