Things have been quiet around here as the last few weeks have been a blur. But now that the semester has commenced I hope to return to a more standard schedule, including my Wednesday book reviews.
I’m excited for the Spring semester to finally start, although it was postponed again this week as a surprise freeze gripped the region. For those interested, here are the three classes I’m teaching this semester. As you can tell, I’m all Revolution, all the time. The Hamilton musical is coming to Houston in a few months, so I’m taking advantage of the cultural excitement that comes with it. (The titles link to the syllabus for the course.)
- The Age of Hamilton: This is an honors seminar with students across the disciplines.
- The Era of the American Revolution, 1763-789: This is an upper-division course for history majors, and it is also framed around the Hamilton play.
- Revolutionary America: This is a graduate course taught on-campus for our master’s degree students.
And by the way, in case you missed the news, my book is out! I’ll have more info next week.
