Beyoncé fans can now study the R&B diva’s new album as part of a new course offered at The University of Texas at San Antonio.
“Black Women, Beyoncé, and Popular Culture” will examine the singer’s ‘visual album’ Lemonade, which she released earlier this year, and how it relates to “theoretical, historical, and literary frameworks of black feminism.”
The class will be taught by top race and gender scholar Kinitra D. Brooks, who insists her course is not intended for hardcore fans, but academics with an interest in what Beyoncé stands for.
“Studying race, gender, class, and pop culture theory is incredibly fun… and incredibly hard,” she says. “There is no shame in deciding you are not ready. You do not have to be a member of the Beyhive. I simply ask that you are willing to be uncomfortable – to have your thoughts and ideas challenged – and then to work/read/write your way through that un-comfortability in order to become a stronger critical thinker.”
