About

Hello! My name is Chelsea Gunn. I’m an archivist and information scientist in Pittsburgh, PA. I care about personal archives, sociotechnical recordkeeping systems, ethics, public humanities, and digital preservation (among many, many other things, professional and otherwise, that I’m happy to talk about at length).

I’m currently a PhD candidate in the department of Information Culture and Data Stewardship at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Computing and Information, where I work as a research assistant on two projects. The first is the National Endowment for the Humanities Office of Digital Humanities grant for Sustaining DH, an Institute for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities. The second is Art on Campus, a survey of Pitt’s public art collection funded through the Office of the Provost.

Prior to pursuing my PhD, I received my MLIS from Simmons University and worked in archives and cultural heritage institutions in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
