Gather ’round, Upper East Siders… for what I’m about to tell you will require your full attention: it will be both shocking and unbelievable. Miley Cyrus is going to college. Well, kind of….
I hear that Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY is offering a summer course that will literally revolve around the girl who can’t keep her tongue in her mouth. The class, titled “The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media” attempts to make Miz Cyrus much more highbrow than anyone could ever imagine. Here’s the course description:
The current media frenzy focused on Miley Cyrus (her public image, her music, and more) highlights the ways in which intersectional identities are shaped by pop culture and mass media. In this special topics course, we will examine core issues of intersectionality theory, looking at the interplay among race, class, and gender, as well as taking a feminist critique of media and sociology of media approach to the Miley “problem.”
So, will there be a test on twerking…?
Do you think this is the lamest course offering ever or are you secretly looking into taking it?
