Lady Gaga Goes to USC

My friend and fellow blogger Ward Williams alerted me to this announcement on Gawker a few weeks ago:

“The University of South Carolina will be offering a class called “Lady Gaga and the Sociology of Fame” beginning next spring, taught by an obsessed professor with a Gaga fansite.”

It’s taken me a bit to mull the whole thing over, as I’ve been trying to figure out whether it’s a joke, a sign of the declining quality of public education, or–and this is what I’ve settled on–proof that Southerners like this professor are engaging in next-level thinking by nimbly incorporating fresh ideas and zeitgeisty concepts into their curricula. Regardless, I’m pretty sure Professor Mathieu Deflem won’t have trouble filling this class next semester.

    Good luck to anyone who takes this course . It’s the professor indulging himself. It’s questionable if he shall be able to separate himself as a educator or a rabid fantard. More about the professor on my blog http://therealgagafrontrow.wordpress.com
