“Those who only know one country know no country.”
– Martin Lipset
The Without Borders Salon Series is for nomads, expats, third-culture kids, immigrants, or anyone who feels inescapably foreign. Hosted by debut host Nolan Yuma Janssens every Sunday in February, we will discuss ways to break down borders through cultural psychology research, immigration advice, and travel stories. Together, we will find ways to limit polarization, support projects that create equal opportunity and form a community for those that feel caught between cultures. This series isn’t some didactic lecture; attendees will be here to discuss and learn from one another.
After living in Chile, Belgium, Canada, and now Spain, Nolan spends his days studying cultural psychology, interviewing people from around the world, travelling, and writing stories to break down borders. His project, Without Borders, is a collective of new articles, stories, videos, and podcasts each week, bringing insight and perspective to these experiences.
Week 1: Culture & WEIRD people
- How do we decide what is universally true about humans?

- What biases and cultural differences should we be aware of?
