This seminar will explore how Lin Manuel Miranda has refashioned early American history to resonate with present-day issues such as immigration, citizenship, and upward mobility. His musical “Hamilton” has become a national sensation, and its popularity affords historians an opportunity to teach students not only about our nation’s founding, but also about the evolution of hip hop and the meaning of the country’s demographic transformation.
