Hannah Gunderman

Hi, I'm Hannah! I'm an academic librarian and a popular culture researcher. In my professional sphere, I occupy two spaces: one as a Data, Gaming, and Popular Culture Librarian at CMU Libraries, and the other as a cultural geographer studying fandom, science fiction, video games, and music. In my role as a Data, Gaming, and Popular Culture Librarian, I am passionate about using my lifelong affinity for video games to teach data management concepts to researchers. As a cultural geographer, I study how people develop enthusiasm towards popular culture media and how this impacts their movements within and perceptions of planet Earth. Holistically across these two spaces, I dedicate my professional career to understanding and leveraging the teaching and learning experiences possible through engagement with popular culture.
