Associate Professor of Law Tara Helfman has contributed an article on the current Broadway play, Hamilton, to Commentary magazine. In the article, Professor Helfman discusses how the play’s themes, centered on an American figure from the 1700s, are relevant to current controversies.

Professor Helfman notes, “Hamilton is being performed as American institutions are being convulsed by a collective identity crisis over how to reconcile the realities of the past with the ideals of the present."
