“Studying Sharapova” a fab elective

The University of Santa Barbara currently has a course called “Picturing Maria Sharapova”.

It’s taught by the fabulous Anita Stahl, a doctoral student in feminist studies.

Stahl says it’s not really about Sharapova. She’s the vehicle through which to study “gender, femininity, globalization, labor, immigration, history, race, and media, according to a WTA story, 

Sharapova’s memoir is required reading, of course.

A big tennis fan who moonlights in tennis media, Stahl also has taught a course called “The Meaning of Serena Williams”.

The story doesn’t ask the obvious question: will the women herself be a guest speaker?
