Beyonce College Course Offered at Rutgers University
Undergraduates at Rutgers University have the opportunity to study their favorite pop star in a college course titled “Politicizing Beyoncé” this summer.
Kevin Allred, a doctoral student and lecturer in the college’s Department of Women and Gender Studies, told college paper Rutgers Today that the class will explore race, gender and sexuality in America via Beyonce’s music.
While much can be said about the Flawless Singers branding and marketing style, Allred’s course will focus on women empowerment, black feminism, and stereotypes.
“She certainly pushes boundaries,” Allred says. “While other artists are simply releasing music, she’s creating a grand narrative around her life, her career, and her persona.”
