• I feel that too many words are making things difficult. Are you just using interviews with people asking them to tell you their story of their life, and then using that (autobiographic-narrative) material as the basis of some theorisation or account or something by you? Or are you collecting other (not just interview with them) material about the same person in order to put their autobiographic-narrative interview material in a stronger context? What is the Central Research Question that you want all your material — whatever you mean by ‘Life Histories’ plus everything else in the ‘other methods’ –to answer? I’m afraid that until you make these things a little clearer, there is not enough to go on for other people to be helpful….. Best wishes.. Tom
