Visual Narratives: Photography as a methodology in the social sciences


Book co-authored by Francisca Ortiz, MICARE postdoctoral researcher, and Denisse Sepúlveda, from the Center for the Study of Conflict and Social Cohesion (COES); published digitally and online in 2022.

This book is part of a project that they define as a space to “highlight photography as an important tool in methodological terms within the social sciences”, and promote that space. It is a collaborative, interdisciplinary project whose objective is to call researchers who want to send the photographs they have taken and interpreted in their studies.

The work in question collects photographs that were part of the “Visual Narratives” project in its first and second calls, years 2020 and 2021, which address different social issues and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Around four major themes, the authors organize these photographic investigations to generate a link between academia, the public, and photography, inviting to review, read and reflect on these images and their social analysis. For this same reason, the book has a Non-Commercial license, which allows free and universal access.
