Led by Dr. Louie Dean Valencia, the class is aptly named “Harry Styles and the Cult of Celebrity: Identity, the Internet and European Pop Culture” and will examine “cultural and political development of the modern celebrity as related to questions of gender and sexuality, race, class, nation and globalism, media, fashion, fan culture, internet culture and consumerism.” In-conversation with CNN, Valencia said that the Pleasing founder has been the subject of much discussion with his students in the recent past. “I can’t tell you how many conversations I’ve had with students over the last two years that started with a shared love of Harry’s music, but that quickly went into larger societal questions about gender, sexuality, race, gun control, sustainability because of Harry’s art,” he said. Now, it begs the question: is it too late to go back to school?
