Beyonce’s course launches at University of Texas San Antonio
Beyonce’s Lemonade album has been dissected and written about and now it’ll be a part of the University of Texas San Antonio’s curriculum.
Taught by Professor Kinitra Brooks, “Black Women, Beyoncé, and Popular Culture”, will focus on the “theoretical, historical, and literary frameworks of black feminism” according to the San Antonio Express-News.
“I have students contacting me and asking me questions about so many things—especially black feminism and theories of black womanhood,” Professor Kinitra Brooks shared with the UTSA website. “The course will be new, fun, and exciting—but I expect my students to come in hungry for knowledge and open to new theories about race and gender in popular culture.”
And Brooks is no stranger to all things black women. Her previous courses include “Black Women in Science Fictions, Fantasy, and Horror,” “The Supernatural in African-American Literature,” as well as an upcoming course on “AfroFuturism.”
