Arriving in 2004, Chad Ross is Visiting Assistant Professor. He earned his doctorate in 2003 at the University of Missouri in Columbia under the direction of Jonathan Sperber. At East Carolina University, Dr. Ross is primarily responsible for teaching World Civilization (History 1030 and 1031), though in Fall 2006 that will also include Modern German and Modern European History. His training is as a German historian and his revised dissertation has been published by Berg Press under the title Naked Germany. Naked Germany, generally is about the uses of the body in Germany between 1900-1950. Specifically, it is a study of how the ideologies of natural healing, racism, eugenics and nationalism converged on the body itself, compelling Germans to disrobe and frolic about the countryside in an effort to build a better German and a better Germany.
