Dr. Peter Kerry Powers enjoys finding the connections between his many areas of interest: American literature, ethnic studies, creative writing, and cultural theory. As the Dean of the School of the Humanities, he is leading the way to develop the Digital Humanities at Messiah.  He continues to teach a course in Literary Journalism for the department, and he is Messiah's only operatic tenor!
