Classy Classes: Students go ham for ‘Hamilton’ in AFRICAAM 5I

In a 1-unit lecture series, CSRE 5I: “Hamilton: An American Musical,” students examine the life of Alexander Hamilton and his contemporaries through an in-depth analysis of the critically-acclaimed Broadway musical that lends its namesake to the course title. The interdisciplinary course invites faculty from several departments – African & African American studies (AAAS), comparative studies in race and ethnicity, theater and performance studies (TAPS) and history, to name a few – to share their perspectives on the music, casting and storytelling of the musical.
