My name is Dana Elizabeth Gerber. I am graduate student of the School of Library and Information Studies of UW Madison, concentrating in the archives track. More specifically, I seek out experiences with public services, oral history, social media and digitization.
I am the founder, producer and host of the podcast Sound of the Archives. Last year, I was an intern in the archives at the Wisconsin Public Radio, where I processed collections. I also had the joy of being a TA for two undergraduate classes, both in the LIS department, focusing on information studies in a wired, multicultural world. Being a TA opened my eyes to my deep love and appreciation for education ... and the feeling I got whenever I connected with a student.
I also had the chance to volunteer at the Circus World Museum and Research Center in Baraboo, Wisconsin, digitizing circus heralds. Last but not least, I was a Reference Assistant in the Archives Reading Room at the Wisconsin Historical Society.
Currently, I am a Podcast Consultant/Project Manager for the WHS Press as well as the Genealogy Marketing Specialist for the WHS Library. I get to record things and post things having to do with history!
I'm originally from California; I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Russian and Eastern European History, emphasizing also on historiography. I took a year of Russian and I am far from fluent. I studied abroad in beautiful London for a semester. I am thankful to have had the chance to travel extensively throughout the United States and Europe. I would love to venture into the former Ottoman Empire next!
I love stories, and I love the multiple ways they can be told. It goes without saying that I love to read, both fiction and non-fiction. I listen to lots and lots of podcasts daily and find myself saying "I heard on a podcast ..." just as daily. I explore new cities mainly in search of well-crafted food, but also love a good show. I always have my camera with me. I am consistently trying to cook and bake more new and interesting recipes; I am also a vegetarian. I love my bike and to take walks. I have a soft spot for classic fashion and crowns. My fiancé and I adopted two kittens, Oslo and Francesca. Autumn is my favorite season. A long time ago I made a promise myself to always ride a carousel if I happened upon one, and I have kept that promise.
I probably want to know you, so please get in touch!
