“There’s a million things I haven’t done but just you wait. …” An opening salvo of the opening song in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton speaks to students in an Honors Program seminar. Who gets to study with a Broadway soundtrack as textbook? This is standard form for Assistant Professor of English Gerry Canavan, who taps brilliance in literature, film making and other art forms to educate and ignite vigorous conversation. “Closely studying the musical, first in its entirety and then moving through it track-by-track, we will also explore the unexpectedly wide impact of Hamilton in the larger world of popular culture and national politics, including the 2016 presidential election.” What fun.
