Professor Erik Steinskog says that students will study Beyonce in much the same way they would study opera and literature. The course is being offered at the University of Copenhagen and is titled 'Beyonce, Gender and Race'.
'We will analyse her songs and music videos. There will be a focus on gender, sexuality, and race. One of the goals [of the class] is to introduce Black feminist thought, which is not well known in Scandinavia.
'We want to explore the kind of entity feminism is,' he added.
'Beyoncé is important in understanding the world we live in.' [Source]
The course is free and 75 students have already enrolled.
