Yesterday Rutgers University made the new for announcing that they are offering a course based around Beyonce.
The class, Politicizing Beyonce, explores ideas of race, gender, and sexuality through her music.
This isn’t a revolutionary idea. Other Universities have offered courses on other artists in the past. Considering that music, in both visual and audio form, are so prevalent in today’s culture, it only makes sense to study them through social lenses.
I’m assuming that over the years more schools will start offering similar classes.
I thought I would do a civil service and help them out by creating some of the classes.
10 to be exact.
