Skidmore College Offers Sociology Course On Miley Cyrus

Skidmore College will offer a class called The Sociology of Miley Cyrus taught by Carolyn Chernoff, Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology.

According to a course description, the class will explore topics like "gender stratification and the hyper-commodification of childhood", "what happens to Disney stars as they age?" and "bisexuality, queerness, and the female body."

"From Disney tween to twerking maching, Miley Cyrus has grown up in the public eye, trying on and discarding very different identities onscreen and off. She provides rich examples for analyzing aspects of intersectional identities and media representation," reads a further description.

Yet, Skidmore isn't the only school to study pop stars, as Rutgers University offers a course called Politicizing Beyonce.
