I’m a learner who writes. I live life and learn things, and then I write here about what I learn.
I’m also a space mermaid sparkle goth.
Need a more formal bio? Here’s one that starts out that way, and then dissolves into silliness.
Kimberly Hirsh is a doctoral candidate in information and library science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her research focuses on the intersection of library and information science, fan studies, and the learning sciences; her dissertation research investigates the information literacy practices of cosplayers and the extent to which they build collective intelligence. Before beginning her doctoral program, she worked as public communications specialist and managing editor for LEARN NC, a university outreach program that shared innovative teaching techniques with K-20 educators. Her work at LEARN NC was shaped by her own experiences as a high school Latin teacher and middle school librarian.
