Miley Cyrus has twerked her way from the stage into the college curriculum.
This summer, Skidmore College in upstate New York will offer a course called “The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media.”
Assistant professor Carolyn Chernoff, who will teach the course, says the class will explore gender, race, class, fame and power through the lens of Miley (and all of her incarnations).
“[Miley] represents how transient wealth and fame can be, and shows how possible it is to change your image,” explains Chernoff.
Sadly, there will be none of the aforementioned twerking, Chernoff says.
“Sorry, dudes, but this is sociology. Learn to twerk on your own time,” she said, according to the Saratogian newspaper.
