Resumen

Why is life history a useful research method to advance in the generation of knowledge applied in studies that work with life experiences? This article considers the present question by discussing the application of the life history method in interviews with migrant women from South Asia in the Basque Country. In doing so, we have used this method as a tool to visualize South Asian women by listening to their experiences from early childhood until the present moment. Life history has been widely used in feminist research as an alternative to other methods that have failed at representing women´s life in research. After a bibliographical revision on life history method, the attention was brought to our case of study, where we explain how to implement the life history method to carry out the interviews with the participants. This work is in progress, and at the end we present the possible future analysis of the collected data.
