What is the value of narrations to sociological research in their interaction with the categories of «time» and «space», and where does this relationship stand in the construction of the paradigm of knowledge? Time and Space are the frame of reference not only to social actions but also to the narrative encounters between interviewer and interviewed. The essay investigates this relationship through a first theoretical analysis with the notion of «regionalization» used by Anthony Giddens in the theory of structuration. Through the analysis of segments of interviews conducted throughout two studies, the results of the theoretical analysis will be compared to the empirical results. The aim of the essay is to contribute elements of reflection to the ongoing debate on the use of verbal sources in social sciences.
