The Department of Women's and Gender Studies at Rutgers University is offering a course called "Politicizing Beyonce." Kevin Allred, a doctoral student who is teaching the class, tells the university's online news site that he is using her career as a way to explore American race, gender and sexual politics. The class supplements an analysis of her videos and lyrics with readings from Black feminists. (Photo by Dan Steinberg/Invision/AP, FIle)
