Anne Applebaum is a staff writer for The Atlantic and a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian. She is also a senior fellow at the John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, where she co-directs Arena, a program on disinformation and 21st century propaganda within the London School of Economics.

She has also worked at the Washington Post as a columnist for 15 years and served as a member of their editorial board.
