The class’ description states, “Using Taylor Swift’s career as a focal point, we’ll explore a range of topics within contemporary media cultures, including star studies, poetry and lyricism, fan studies, girlhood, activism, race, gender, and parasocial relationships. We’ll analyze the texts of her songs along with the paratexts of her music videos, acting roles, documentaries, and public appearances. This class features multiple guest lecturers on writing and analyzing poetry, marketing, and creative nonfiction. We’ll have a marvelous time, ruining everything.”
