The course synopsis details that studying will be studying Taylor Swift’s enormous catalog ‘including hits, deep cuts, outtakes, re-recordings, considering songwriting as its own art, distinct from poems recited or silently read’.
Harvard’s English Department will debut the course titled “Taylor Swift and Her World,” in the spring semester on 2024, taught by Harvard English professor Stephanie L. Burt.
Burt has declared herself a ‘Swiftie’ since she heard Taylor Swift’s “You Belong with Me” back in 2009. Fourteen years later, she is spearheading a course, enlightening students (and herself) on the journey of one of the world most renown singer/songwriters of all-time.
