In recent years, researchers have been interested in the way in which photographs can obtain information, evoke thoughts and memories, or open up possibilities to explore experiences and the creation of meaning (Harper, 2002). Therefore, our interest is in calling upon researchers who would like to send photographs they have obtained for research purposes, accompanied by their narrations. The purpose of the “Visual Narratives Project” is not only to highlight photography as an important tool in methodological terms within the social sciences, but also to promote a space for researchers who base their work on photography. For this reason, we invite you to send photographs related to research within the social sciences. The deadlines is until 30th of November 2020 More information about the call and the project in: https://narrativasvisuales.com/
