News & Events
We go to the theater not just to escape our own lives, but to see part of ourselves reflected on the stage. Michael Kennedy’s work explores the ties between musical theater and the world around us. A PhD candidate in musicology, Kennedy was recently selected as a 2017-18 Dean’s Fellow. His dissertation, “(Re-)Orchestrating the Music: Broadway’s Postmodern Sound from ‘Hair’ to ‘Hamilton,’” examines how Broadway’s orchestral sound has undergone considerable change since the late 1960s. Here, he discusses his favorite era of musicals, the relationship between politics and theater, Broadway’s legal issues, and his next act after graduation.
Graduate education at UC covers a wide swath of territory with a lot of moving parts—350 different graduate degree programs and certificates, to be exact. With over 11,000 graduate students spread across 10 colleges, how do we ensure that the voice of graduate students is heard on a large scale? The Graduate Student Governance Association (GSGA) provides a united voice across program and college lines, advocating on behalf of the graduate student population.
