making the world a little wiser
a platform for change


Would you like to become an ambassador?

Everybody has a story and yours is unquestionably worth sharing. Nevertheless, we believe that in this increasingly chaotic world, where everyone is constantly sharing the minutiae of their daily lives while extolling the virtues of storytelling, we are missing the point. We believe that the scientific realm, which operates mostly on peer reviews, should also cultivate peer empowerment. To celebrate one another and engage with our individual insights with greater intent.

The campfire was once upon a time a cherished place to recount, share and listen to stories. These days, everybody is sharing online. The question that begs asking is: who is really listening? The transformational power of stories has to do with the interplay between speaker and listener. We want to reestablish this invaluable dynamic. That, in a nutshell, is why we started #phdstories #studentstories.

We invite you to take a breather, grab a coffee, set out for a stroll with a friend, gather in a park with colleagues and have a conversation about your ongoing work, the research you’ve undertaken, the questions you want answered, the ideas underpinning the process, your dreams and doubts about it all… and to share it with us. If you’re curious about joining our vibrant community or would simply like to learn more, do reach out.

*we will use this email only to answer your questions.


A place on the web for people interested in the past, passionate about the present, and curious about the future.
