Rutgers Offering a Course on Beyonce
Kevin Allred, a doctoral student who is teaching the class, tells the university’s online news site that he is using Beyoncé’s career as a way to explore American race, gender and sexual politics.
The class supplements an analysis of Beyoncé’s videos and lyrics with readings from black feminists. Allred says he’s seeking to help students think more critically about media consumption.
The article points out that Rutgers also offers a course on Springsteen, but you already knew/took that.
