Cold War

Joseph A. Ross

I am an educator, writer, public speaker, researcher, and historian. I show college students why the past is relevant to the present by teaching them historical thinking skills (sourcing, contextualizing, close reading, and corroborating).

My current research project examines the role of key American participants at the Nuremberg War Crimes Trial (1945-1946) in creating a human rights moment in the postwar period. My work combines international law, intellectual history, human rights, and historical memory.
