Andrew T. Marshall (G’22), a Ph.D. student in Government (Comparative Government focus) is the recent recipient of a Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Fellowship. He is currently in Kenya working on his dissertation research, which examines two linguistically diverse countries in East Africa: Kenya and Tanzania. Marshall is comparing and contrasting the role of official language policies – given the more than 60 languages spoken in Kenya and the more than 120 languages spoken in Tanzania – that contribute to the ways in which each country's citizens understand and identify with their nation. (More details are available about Andrew Marshall and his doctoral research.)
