Episode Six: Librarians in Pop Culture

Miyo and James are at it again! This is our first podcast in a year so we decided to devote it to a subject that is partly the reason for the hiatus. Miyo is finally a Librarian, yay!

In this episode we take a look at the many appearances of Librarians in pop culture. We examine librarian stereotypes and how they are perpetuated or challenged.

Further readings:

-You Don't Look Like a Librarian- A book that pops up at many Library conferences! Chapter 2 is devoted to Pop Culture and Librarians.
-The Hollywood Librarian-a film that examines portrayals of librarians in movies.
Spectacles-a blog that examines how pop culture views librarians.
