Ramey Mize named Penn Arts and Sciences 2019 Dean’s Scholar

Ramey Mize (History of Art) is a third-year doctoral student who is researching American art during the Civil War period. Her dissertation aims to explore the intersection of visual culture with civil, colonial, and imperial violence during a period of immense turbulence in American history. Ramey’s approach is extraordinary in proposing to examine representations from both sides of each conflict, highlighting pictures for special attention from northern and southern states, from Native American and Euro-American artists, and from U. S. and Spanish/Cuban artists. Ramey’s instructors across the board rave about her contributions to their seminars, describing her as “a standout from day one.”

Penn Arts and Sciences has named 20 students from the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Liberal and Professional Studies, and the Graduate Division as 2019 Dean’s Scholars. This honor is presented annually to students who exhibit exceptional academic performance and intellectual promise.
