You can now attend a University course about Harry Styles

Texas State University will be launching a course next year based completely on pop-singer Harry Styles. 

The course is promising a deeper exploration into the singer’s work by associate professor of digital history at Texas State Louie Dean Valencia, a massive fan of Styles himself.  

The course was announced last week that he will be teaching an Honours College course titled ‘Harry Styles and the Cult of Celebrity: Identity, the Internet and European Pop Culture’ in Spring 2023. 

The flier released outlines a broader focus on Styles and how he factors into the ‘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.’ 

The professor spoke with The SYSCA Daily about proposing the course, highlighting the impact of the Styles fandom and One Direction. The course aims to show how Styles impacted the world through his activism, philosophy and art. 

Students will also be tasked with producing a podcast series about the topic as they examine Style’s music as well as his input into the movie industry.

The American DJ & producer brought a bag full of hard-hitting tracks as he headlined the returning Isle of MTV Malta concert, where he was joined by fellow headliners French Montana, Mae Muller, bbno$ and Shaun Farrugia, together with a number of other Maltese acts.

Dropping a who’s who’s of collaborations such as ‘Happier’ with Bastille and ‘Be Kind’ with Halsey, together with a mix of hard-hitting tracks he is well-known for, Marshmello certainly put on a spectacular show.

One million cancel their Netflix subscription in biggest loss to platform

One million cancel their Netflix subscription in biggest loss to platform

Netflix has just reported its largest quarterly loss in the company’s history as thousands of streamers cancelled their subscriptions with the giant. 

The streaming service had announced its hopes to add one million subscribers in the third quarter after predicting a loss of two million subscribers in the quarter ending 30th June. 

In reality however, the company reported a loss of 970,000 subscribers, which is, to be fair, less than the predicted two million. This is still their biggest subscriber loss to date. 

With stock on a decline of approximately 70% in 2021 and market value decreasing from $300 billion to under $90 billion in less than a year, the company expressed that they will continue improving all aspects of the platform.

They cited Stranger Things Season 4’s success as proof of ‘the effectiveness of [our] marketing strategy in driving conversation around our titles.’ 

Speaking about their place in relation to competitors such as Disney+, Netflix said that Stranger Things continues to outpace Obi-Wan Kenobi and Top Gun Maverick, but the series’ end next season could put this in jeopardy. Netflix is set to roll out an ad-supported subscription early in 2023.
