I cannot make any sense out of this but then, Georgetown University already has a class called “The Sociology of Hip-Hop: The Urban Theodicy of Jay-Z,” which focuses on Beyoncé’s rapper husband.
Following the above, Rutgers University has decided to offer a course on the study of Beyonce, who is one of the world’s most scrutinized pop stars…
The Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University is offering a course called “Politicizing Beyonce.”
Kevin Allred, a doctoral student who is teaching the class, tells the university’s online news site that he is using Beyonce’s career as a way to explore American race, gender and s*xual politics.
The class supplements an analysis of Beyonce’s videos and lyrics with readings from Black feminists. Allred says he’s seeking to help students think more critically about media consumption.
