Congratulations to Dr. Keon Pettiway!

Keon Pettiway successfully defended his dissertation on May 24. Keon’s dissertation, “‘A New African in the World’: A rhetorical study of Kwame Nkrumah’s visual strategy for shaping postcolonial nationhood,” is a theoretically sophisticated, well-researched study of administrative portraiture of Nkrumah and the crucial role such portraiture played — and continues to play — in constituting post-colonial, pan-African, and African diasporic identities and nation branding.
Keon’s committee is chaired by Dr. Victoria Gallagher, and joined by Dr. Melissa Johnson, Dr. Sarah Stein, and Dr. Rebecca Walsh.
