There’s a new Harvard course covering all things Taylor Swift — and yes, that means her relationships, including her Mr. Right Now, Travis Kelce … so says the professor who’s teaching the class.
One of Harvard’s English professors, Stephanie Burt, joined us Tuesday on “TMZ Live” to discuss the class she’ll be heading up next semester called ‘Taylor Swift and Her World’ — which she made very clear will put an emphasis on the literary merit behind T-Swift’s art.
It’s obvious from the video, but Prof. Burt is a self-professed Swiftie, but says that’s not the reason she’s teaching this course. As she explains to us, Taylor’s work/fandom are very much worthy of study.
In fact, because her personal life is so tied into her songwriting, that means who she dates will get some attention in this class. However, Prof. Burt notes they probably won’t spend so much time on Trav … mostly because she hasn’t written a song about him just yet.
If history’s any indication … she might have to break up with him first for that to happen. 😅
Anyway, Harvard ain’t the only higher-ed institution that’s doing this for TayTay, for what it’s worth … the University of Florida is also introducing a Taylor-centric course of their own very soon — and Arizona State already has one too. Indeed, academia hearts Taylor!
And, if it wasn’t obvious already … there’s a ton of interest in this new Harvard course. As Professor Burt tells us, there are already hundreds of people who’ve signed up for the Spring.
Taylor Swift … coming to a big lecture hall near you.
