ZUBILLAGA, Verónica. A Reflexive Testimony on the Experience of Constructing the Life Histories of Youths with Violent Lifestyles. Rev. Mex. Sociol [online]. 2003, vol.65, n.2, pp.305-338. ISSN 2594-0651.

This article pursues two aims; i) to share and provide guidelines on the experience of recording the life histories of young males with violent lifestyles in a Latin American city such as Caracas; ii) to comment on the interview method as a form of action that produces knowledge, which in this case is specifically affected by the difference in gender, and, to a lesser extent, the interviewer's age, job and social class.

Keywords : violence; young males; Latin America; stories; interaction; go-between; gender.
