This thesis examines the potential of popular media to be a positive educational tool for historic preservation. The current methods of educating the general public about historic preservation are briefly analyzed, as well as the influence of popular media. Nine case studies, from current television programs and magazines, are presented as examples of preservation representation. Necessary changes in popular media’s message are discussed and several related topics for future research are proposed.
