Hamilton in Context



Counting down the hours until you can experience Hamilton: An American Musical on the small screen? Re-watching to catch all of the details you missed the first time?

We’ve got you covered, courtesy of student projects from our department’s Hamilton course which I had the pleasure to teach in Spring 2018 and Fall 2019.

Enjoy some deep dives into the people, places, and cultural references that appear in the musical, starting with the Washington Monument, a line from South Pacific, the myth of Icarus, a line from the Bible, and John Laurens.

I’ll be posting additional entries in the next weeks, so feel free to check back for more Hamilton in Context.
