Amongst the classes in Shakespeare, Chaucer and classic American literature, the English Department at The University Of Missouri is offering courses in Jay-Z and Kanye West. According to their website the details are as follows
“This course looks at the career and work of Jay-Z and Kanye West from three perspectives: (1) Where do they fit within, and how do they change, the history of hip-hop music? (2) How is what they do similar to and different from what poets do?, and (3) How does their rise to both celebrity and corporate power alter what we understand as the American dream? In addition to listening to music and watching videos, we will also read Jay-Z’s Decoded; histories of and critical works on rap music by Jeff Chang, Adam Bradley, and others; and one or two good studies of how poetry works.”
Just consider the delight factor for potential employers when they see this on your résumé?
