Harvard Graduate Course Examines Importance of Poop in French Literature

Have you ever wanted to tell a college professor that they’re full of crap? Well, one Harvard professor wants to talk about precisely that.

Harvard University — who we’re always told is the greatest school ever — is bringing back a course from last year’s spring semester that has students holding their noses. That’s right. You can now take a Harvard graduate course on “the poetics of fecal matter” in 20th and 21st century French literature.

According to the Daily Mail:

Assistant Professor of Romance Languages and Literature Annabel Kim offers the course carefully titled, 'Cacaphonies: Toward an Excremental Poetics', which was taught in spring 2017 and currently in the 2018 semester.

The four credit class 'proposes to take fecal presence seriously and to attend to the things it has to tell us,' the course catalog of the Ivy League website reads.

'By starting with the following premise: If literature is excrement, then the canon is a chamber pot,' the explanation says further[…]

The course explanation furthermore will: 'Provide another angle from which to approach the question of gender and writing, as gender organizes both literature and defecation.

'Offer an alternative theory of the significance of fecal matter to the dominant one provided by psychoanalysis. The goal of the course is to begin to articulate and realize an original approach to literature that, rather than take feces as a site of disgust, takes it as a site of creation.’

I’m sorry, what?!

“A site of creation?” Is this like that children’s book, “Everyone Poops?” Apparently not.

Another pointless course by an indoctrinator whose Harvard bio page says that Kim is “interested in feminist writing and theory.” I guess this all makes sense now.

Much like modern feminism is full of crap, so is French literature, I suppose.

Nothing like putting students in mountains of debt contemplating the importance of poop as it pertains to books that have nothing to do with fecal matter.

The college indoctrination system definitely stinks!
