Rihanna & Beyoncé Get Class Dedicated To Them

UT Austin students, get ready because starting in the spring 2015, y’all will have a class dedicated to Rihanna and Beyoncé and how they represent feminism and womanism. Read more about the class below.

Students in this class will learn that there is far more than catchy melodies to Beyoncé’s and Rihanna’s music. They will not be simply listening to Beyoncé and Rihanna for fun or even comparing the roles of Beyoncé and Rihanna in popular culture, rather, students will be studying how the lyrics, music videos, and actions of these women express various aspects of black feminism such as violence, economic opportunity, sexuality, standards of beauty, and creative self-expression. The instructor hopes for students to understand the role black feminism plays in popular culture as well as everyday life.
