Reaching for Atlantis collaborates with partners from different nations – here you can find information about our 'core team'!
Bernhard Schirg (project leader)
Bernhard leads the Reaching for Atlantis team. As a Freigeist-scholar, he is at home in the fascinating world of Sweden’s last Renaissance man – both intellectually and physically.
Bernhard delights in instilling curiosity, building bridges, and creating connections. Like a truffle pig, he forages in the special reading rooms at obscure libraries as well as in the landscapes of Sweden, always eager to explore new ways to bring you the stories he comes across and to rekindle your sense of wonder.
