In this call for papers, we intend to bring together researchers who adopt different approaches to research the narratives of the users. Our goal is to rethink how we research narrative practices from the perspective of users. We want to receive works that contextualize the narratives of users in the contemporary complexities (sociocultural, political and technological), where human and nonhuman, digital and material are part of our day to day, our stories. We also hope to receive work oriented towards future trends and new methodologies.

Topics and research lines from our call for papers include, but are not limited to:

- Youtubers and new types of digital celebrities;
- The selfies and other forms of personal narrative through the image and video;
- Self-monitoring and self-tracking
- The relationship between users' experiences with the social media platforms and/or algorithms;
- The productivity of the fans through transformative works based on popular narratives;
- User-generated content based on current political, social or cultural issues;
- The relationship between user activity, their stories and television co-viewing (social TV);
- Consumption as a narrative experience;
- New methodologies to study the narratives of users.
- The interrelation between the narratives of the users and traditional media, such as television or advertising.
- The role of personal stories and fictionalization in journalistic practice.
