Brian Gribben is a Ph.D. student specializing in Modern Germany and Holocaust studies after a brief dalliance studying agrarian populist movements on the Great Plains. His research interests include the denazification and reconstruction in the western zones of occupation in postwar Germany. He received his B.A. in political science in 2000, his B.A. in history in 2008, and his M.A. in 2010 from Fort Hays State University.
Brian’s Master’s thesis, Weighted Scales: American Newspaper Coverage of the Trial of the Major War Criminals at Nuremberg, examines the first Nuremberg trial’s depiction in the American press and identifies biases reflective of each publication’s ideological affiliation. The thesis received the 2010-2011 Award for Outstanding Thesis/Field Study from Fort Hays State University Graduate School.
