    Activity with Antiquity: A New Approach to Historic Preservation Education

    September 12, 2019 from 2:00pm - 3:00pm

    Activity with Antiquity: A New Approach to Historic Preservation Education

    Join us for this prospectus presentation by Clay Fellows, candidate for a master's degree in Historic Preservation.

    Summary: Historic preservation is a field which would benefit significantly from widespread and strategic social media usage. The intuitive interface and design elements of social media platforms have given content creators powerful tools for entertainment, outreach, and education as information is more readily available than ever. This technology has developed at an astonishing rate by preservation standards and it continues to evolve. However, social media is no longer an emerging technology….Sharing information and connecting with the world through internet applications can now be considered a way of life and it requires preservationists to shift their ways of thinking when considering public engagement strategies and fundraising tactics.

    By investing time and resources into these accessible mediums of content production, preservationists can increase public awareness, knowledge, and support for historic preservation efforts. “Activity with Antiquity” will serve as an early demonstrative example of the techniques described in this thesis. The future and collective applications of these proven social media strategies will play a vital role in ensuring the growth and relative permanence of the historic preservation field, and thus enhance the relevance of material culture in a modern world.
