“The stories we tell: creative nonfiction accounts of our research” uses techniques of creative writing to bring research to life for a non-specialist readership.
Over the past year, 19 researchers have put together the first FASoS anthology of creative nonfiction, featuring work from all four faculty research groups and all five departments. FASoS researchers take readers on a journey into the offices of bored EU bureaucrats, the hideouts of crypto-currency criminals, the sewers of Maastricht, the streets of 20th century colonial Kolkata, a shoe factory in Addis Ababa, the harbour of bustling post-war Rijeka, and much more, to find out what it’s really like to be there!
We particularly recommend the contributions by our MUSTS colleagues Maud Oostindie (“Farmers and Foodies”), Jacob Ward (“Do Engineers Dream of Electric People?”), Sally Wyatt (“Caring for Teeth”), and Ragna Zeiss (“Big Brown Data”). You can access the anthology below:
