College Course Centers on Beyonce

After naming a fly after her, academia continues its fascination with Beyonce with this latest move: a college course that uses the diva to explore "American race, gender, and sexual politics."

“This isn’t a course about Beyoncé’s political engagement or how many times she performed during President Obama’s inauguration weekend,” he says. Rather, the performer’s music and career are used as lenses to explore American race, gender, and sexual politics. Allred pairs Beyoncé’s music videos and lyrics with readings from the Black feminist canon, including the writings of bell hooks, Alice Walker, and even abolitionist Sojourner Truth.
