From The College Fix:

Welcome to “The Politics of Kanye West: Black Genius and Sonic Aesthetics,” a class that debuted this spring at Washington University in St. Louis.

“Hip-Hop icon Kanye West is many things. Undeniably, he has had unprecedented impact on music, fashion, politics, and videography,” reads the course syllabus. “Coupling his controversial moments, with his corpus of musical texts with special focus on sonic production, this course illuminates ‘Mr. West’ as a case study for interrogating the interplay between fame, gender, sexuality, and race.”
