Tacos may soon become synonymous with college — and no, we’re not talking about late-night binges.
The University of Kentucky is making dreams come true by offering its first-ever taco-inspired class called “Taco Literacy: Public Advocacy and Mexican Food in the U.S. South” during the spring semester.
While one might expect it to be a cooking class of sorts, Writing and Digital Studies professor Steven Alvarez — the mastermind behind the new course — is quick to clarify his curriculum.
“I make them collect stories,” Alvarez told Vice in an interview. “I have students doing restaurant reviews and taco tours in the area that is now known as ‘Mexington’ a.k.a. the barrio of Lexington.”
