Episode 6: Preservation and Social Media with Jennifer Graves Hance

In this week’s episode I interview Jennifer Graves Hance, the face behind the popular Instagram account the.preservationist. Jennifer talks about the process she uses to curate her Instagram and how preservationists and preservation organizations can use social media to share information. We also discuss other apps such as The Historic Charleston Foundation’s app that functions like a pocket guide and map to historic sites in Charleston and their two historic house museums. In New Orleans, Tulane University and the University of New Orleans have collaborated to create a similar app called New Orleans Historical, which connects stories of history with locations in the city (place based story telling).
