Washington, Jan 28 (ANI): After Jay-Z was honoured with a Georgetown University sociology course named after him, wife Beyonce has become the subject of a university course of her own.
Lecturer Kevin Allred has signed up to teach Politicising Beyonce as part of Rutgers University's Women's and Gender Studies curriculum.
The class offers New Jersey students the chance to watch the pop star's music videos and explore how the 'Single Ladies' hitmaker's image and music has impacted the world.
An overview of the course on the university's website reads, "The performer's music and career are used as lenses to explore American race, gender, and sexual politics... Course topics include the extent of Beyonce's control over her own aesthetic, whether her often half-naked body is empowered or stereotypical, and her more racy performances as her alter ego, Sasha Fierce," Contactmusic reported.
The course includes class discussions, which "often lead to other vocalists, including Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Lady Gaga, and contemporary musicians who embrace the soul singing tradition like Adele and the late Amy Winehouse." (ANI)
