Rutgers University is offering a course on Beyoncé!!! Well, it's about time! The course will explore Bey's ability to "effect social change," as well as compare her to the works of Bell Hooks, Alice Walker, and Sojourner Truth!
Professor Kevin Allred, who will be teaching the course has this to say about it:
"She certainly pushes boundaries. While other artists are simply releasing music, she’s creating a grand narrative around her life, her career, and her persona. This isn’t a course about Beyoncé’s political engagement or how many times she performed during President Obama’s inauguration weekend."
This course actually sounds like a very fascinating and insightful look into the role of pop culture and its ability to affect people on a large scale! Consider me registered for THIS!
