Pitt-Bradford Promotes Two to Full Professor

The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford has promoted two members of the faculty to the rank of full professor.

Dr. Kevin A. Ewert has been promoted to professor of theater, and Tim Ziaukas has been promoted to professor of public relations.

“Achieving the rank of full professor is a major goal for many faculty members,” said Dr. Steven Hardin, vice president and dean of academic affairs. “We’re very happy that Tim and Kevin have achieved this important goal. The university is proud to recognize their significant accomplishments through the awarding of this promotion.”

Ewert teaches theater and is the director of the theater program. In addition to teaching and directing the student production each semester, he is an accomplished Shakespeare scholar, most recently co-editing “The Routledge Companion to Actors’ Shakespeare” last year with John Russell Brown, former associate director of the Royal National Theatre in London and the editor of the “Oxford Illustrated History of Theater.” He is also co-editor of three new volumes in a series published by Palgrave Macmillan, “The Shakespeare Handbooks: Shakespeare’s Contemporaries.” The new volumes are on “The Changeling,” “The White Devil” and “’Tis Pity She’s a Whore.” Ewert holds a doctorate and a Master of Arts degree in Shakespeare Studies from The Shakespeare Institute. In addition, he continues to work professionally as a director, most recently traveling to direct productions in North Carolina.

Ziaukas is director of the public relations program and teaches courses in public relations, communications and popular culture. Before coming to Pitt-Bradford in 1994, he was director of communications for Pitt’s Oakland campus. He has published in “American Journalism,” “The Journal of Public Relations Research” and “Public Relations Quarterly,” among other journals and magazines. Ziaukas holds a Master of Arts in literature and a Master of Fine Arts in creative non-fiction from the University of Pittsburgh. Currently on the editorial board of “American Journalism,” he also serves as marketing consultant for the Bradford Creative and Performing Arts Center. He is now completing a program in Egyptology from the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom.
