Social Stories: Sharing Stories, Inspiring Lives

Social Stories: The Brainchild of The Sociology Group!

Social Stories: The Brainchild of The Sociology Group, Uniting Individuals through Shared Academic Struggles.

We, at Sociology Group, want to hear stories that inspire and motivate people through our new initiative, ‘Social Stories. The Sociology Group is a global academic community is working on a mission to fulfill the requirements of all the social science disciplines. We do have different types of initiatives like publishing essays, book reviews, interviews with distinguished personalities in academia, media, and with social activists.

Understanding the Initiative

Our Social Stories initiative is a gateway for sharing your stories about success, failure, social empowerment, or any relevant experience in academia with others. You can write about your journey, what approach you took to overcome your challenges, whether it worked or not, or what you think in hindsight you could have done differently. 

We can all agree that academia can be competitive and fast paced. Everyday is a new challenge. Just to make this journey a little easier for those who may be facing the same challenges as you, such as facing discrimination; a new journey of life at a not so conventional age of 40 or anything that tells us your story.

If you want your story to be featured on our platform, you must go through these selection criteria prior to submitting your entries:

  • Stories will be selected on the basis of originality and its ability to impart valuable life lessons.
  • Contributors are encouraged to emphasize the theme ‘social empowerment’ in their stories by narrating experiences of caste-based, gender-based or racial discrimination, or any other form of social injustice.
  • Creativity in story-telling will be accounted for.
  • Instead of chronologically listing the events of the story, contributors are advised to focus on the obstacles faced and the strategies applied to cope with these challenges.

Please note that contributors whose stories will be featured on our platform will receive a certificate of appreciation.

If you are on board our mission and prepared to share your story with the world, send us your entries at [email protected]. You are welcome to contribute to the platform regardless of your age and educational qualification. We also request you to adhere to the following submission guidelines:
