This evocative autoethnography brings an insider perspective to the Charles Sturt University doctoral journey. Here, two academics re-write and re-story their own experiences as higher degree research student, supervisory team member and post-doctoral scholar. The work re-examines several years of Charles Sturt University researcher stories, interpretations written about them and how the meaning, of these stories for the researchers, has evolved. We take published narrative snap shots and revision them as new stories to fast forward them into the present. This reflexive writing tool (after Ellis, 2009) invites us to consider how tentative and incomplete stories and memories are and expands our understanding of a culture by offering new interpretations.
