Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s love story goes academic with Harvard English course

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s romance gained widespread attention in 2023, capturing the intersection of the music and NFL worlds. From Kelce publicly expressing his desire to share his number with Taylor Swift, to him buying a new luxurious mansion for Swift’s privacy, the couple has come a long way.

The interesting thing about this relationship is that they have got all of their friends and family members involved. But hold on because the real game-changer is their romance stepping into the hallowed halls of Harvard University.

Harvard professor to teach course on Travis-Taylor romance

Absurd as it sounds, Harvard University is set to offer a course titled ‘Taylor Swift and Her World,’ covering aspects of Swift’s life, including her relationship with NFL star Travis Kelce. 

The course will be taught by Harvard English professor Stephanie Burt, focusing on the literary merit of Taylor Swift’s music and exploring her relationships as a significant source of inspiration.

“She writes about her relationships, so we’ll be talking about Travis Kelce. The amount of time we give him, is going to depend of whether she has released songs about him and their relationship. But the focus is on her as an artist,” the professor said.

Professor Burt emphasized that the primary focus is on Taylor Swift as an artist, with attention to Travis Kelce being contingent on whether Swift releases songs about their relationship.

She also added that she sees Taylor Swift as one of the great songwriters of our time, utilizing words in her performances akin to poetry and literary writing. The course aims to delve into the artistic expression and excellence in Swift’s work, using her relationships as a lens to understand her creative process.

“I’m a literary scholar, and try to study and share excellence in the arts that use words. Like poetry, literary writing… Song writers use words in their performance, and Taylor Swift is one of the great songwriters of our time”.

The course has garnered substantial interest, with just under 300 people already signing up, a remarkable figure compared to Harvard’s average class size of 12 students.

“I believe we’re just under 300 people. I will have help though, with two other teaching assistants on board,” the professor added.

The popularity of this course is not shocking considering the incredible interest the NFL fans and the Swifties have shown in this relationship and now, they have a chance to study it at one of the most prestigious universities in the world.
