Historians recognize that traditional communication channels (e.g., scholarly monographs, academic articles) have limited reach, appeal, and impact among non-experts. History Communicators (#HistComm) is a campaign to bring historical scholarship beyond the ivory tower by connecting public historians, journalists, and university scholars with history departments, and training the next generation of historians to communicate using digital and interactive media. The current case study describes year one the first two years of this campaign, spearheaded by Jason Steinhauer, a public historian at the Library of Congress, to ensure that the ongoing work of historians contributes to public discourse by reaching students, teachers, policymakers, and audiences beyond academia.
