Yes–and it’s being offered by Skidmore College (come on, don’t laugh) in Saratoga Springs, New York, which bills itself as a liberal arts college. No kidding.
The full name of the course is “The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media” and will be taught by visiting assistant professor Carolyn Chernoff. She says that the goal of the course will be to use Cyrus as a pivot point for discussion on gender, fame, power, class and race.
Oddly, twerking doesn’t seem to be anywhere in the course description. But there has to be at least a class for two on “The Roll of the Tongue,” right?
