About Tejvan Pettinger

I was born in Runnymede, London, United Kingdom, in 1976. I went to Menston Primary School and Bradford Grammar School.

At university I studied Politics, Philosophy, Economics (PPE) (2:1) at Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford. During my studies I specialized in the following areas:

  • British social history since 1870.
  • International relations between the two world wars.
  • Political Philosophy.
  • Development Economics.

I am currently living in Oxford. I teach economics part-time.

I started the site because:

  • I have always been interested in learning about people.
  • I am interested in history, especially modern history.
  • I wanted to have an income in addition to my economics teaching so I could devote more time to cyclical training.
  • I like learning about inspiring new people from history. For example, Witold Pilecki and Chiune Sugihara, from the book Heroes of World War II.
  • I have always been interested in issues such as human rights, religious tolerance, inspirational people, human rights history in quotes.
  • I am interested in picking out my favorite works of art, the greatest scientists.

Note on images: The site uses images of people. They are usually taken from Wiki Commons, which is a great source for finding images in the public domain. Sometimes small, low-resolution images of dead people are used, according to the “fair use” clause. Please note: I do not own the copyrights to the images of people.
