Adrian Chubb is a Ph.D. student in the Germanic Studies department. Adrian's research focuses on the Federal Republic in the post-war years; he explores the intersection and interaction between culture and politics during this period, particularly related to the protest movements of the 1960s and 1970s. Additional areas of interest include German thought from the Enlightenment to the Frankfurt School, theories of the public sphere, and representations of the female terrorist. His dissertation has the working title: "Günter Grass and the late 1960s: In Search of Public Sphere Pluralism." Adrian attended the University of Lancaster, Lancaster, UK, where he obtained a B.A. in German and Russian Studies and an M.A. in German Studies. Prior to joining Germanic Studies at UIC, he worked in corporate communications, marketing, computer programming, and data and systems analysis in Germany and the USA.
