Jason Steinhauer
Author, History, Disrupted: How Social Media & the World Wide Web Have Changed the Past

Jason Steinhauer is passionate about creating an educated, informed, and historically and media-literate citizenry. He formerly served as Founding Director of the Lepage Center for History in the Public Interest. Steinhauer is currently a Global Fellow at the Wilson Center and a Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute. He is also an adjunct professor at the Maxwell School for Citizenship & Public Affairs; a contributor to TIME, CNN, RealClear Politics, and DEVEX; a past editorial board member of the Washington Post "Made By History" section; a Presidential Counselor of the National World War II Museum; and an expert speaker for the U.S. Department of State. He worked for seven years at the U.S. Library of Congress.

Jason's bestselling book, History, Disrupted: How Social Media & the World Wide Web Have Changed the Past, examines how social media shapes what we know about the past. The book has been reviewed and read around the world, and Jason has been invited to speak at more than 180 events for organizations that include the U.S. Army; National Security Agency; U.S. Department of State; European Parliament; European Commission; Harvard Club of Washington, D.C.; Georgetown University's Institute for the Study of Diplomacy; Microsoft; Sundance Film Festival; SxSW; and dozens of universities. He has appeared on NPR five times, and the book release was filmed and aired by C-SPAN.

In 2020, he founded the History Club show on Clubhouse, which he hosted regularly. The club grew to more than 100,000 members and averaged 2,500 participants per week. His History Club newsletter is currently read by policymakers, diplomats, scholars, and citizens worldwide. In 2014, he coined the term "History Communicators" and has worked with colleagues worldwide to create the field of History Communication. He is the founder and CEO of the History Communication Institute, which comprises 150 scholars and practitioners on six continents.

Jason has traveled to 10 countries with the U.S. Department of State as part of diplomatic exchanges between the United States and the European Union. He has met with government policymakers, military personnel, civil society organizations, scholars, and students to discuss the effects of the Web and social media on public understanding of news, history, and information. He has spoken at events across the United States and Europe and appears frequently in the media. A native New Yorker, he is a long-suffering New York Jets fan.
