Watch: Meet the trans professor teaching a HARVARD class on Taylor Swift's relationship with Travis Kelce
Harvard has become a bastion of many things as of late. Rampant antisemitism. Former child star David Hogg. Not defunding the Thought Police. But now they're about to go from an obscure New England school to the most prestigious institute of higher learning in America. They are offering a class on Taylor Swift. "Taylor Swift and Her World." We can confirm her relationship with Travis Kelce will be on the syllabus.
Don't get too excited yet, though, Chiefs fans. Taylor hasn't written a song about him yet, so at best, there will only be a pop-up quiz until she does.
The class will be taught by Harvard English professor Stephanie Burt. As you can tell, Professor Burt is a YUGE Swiftie.
Stephanie sat down with TMZ to address critics wondering why Taylor Swift is worthy of academic study.
"I'm a literary critic and a literary scholar, and I try to study and share excellence in the arts that use words. Some of those arts are page-based poetry are novel writing. Those are only words. Other arts use 'words plus.'"
We had Travis Kelce in the headline, and I know that's why a few of you are here. OF COURSE, it would be impossible to discuss Taylor Swift's literary prowess without also discussing her personal life.
"Coverage of her as an artist has proven indissoluble..."
Now THAT's a word plus!
"...from coverage of her relationships. Because women get to be looked at more in terms of who we're dating, especially straight women, maybe."
Wait... I'm getting word that Harvard will NOT be the first now former elite university to teach a class on the literary prowess of T-Swizzle. Stanford University beat them to it and announced their class a few months ago.
Here's the thing: I'm not going to lie and say I don't enjoy some of her music. I've fallen off a bit, but am still a firm believer that life is too short not to admit you enjoy catchy Taylor Swift tunes. But people have gone from enjoying an artist's songs to building a cult around her where they refer to her as "Mother." That now includes teaching classes at Ivy League universities by professors who are starting the class for no reason other than maybe Taylor will observe a lecture one day.
Which, whatever. Just don't expect taxpayers to pay off your student loans so you can play F/M/K with John Mayer, Matt Healy, and Travis Kelce.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
