With the last week of classes quickly approaching, students began studying for their final exams. Meanwhile, engineering professor Juner Zhu was busy studying EV batteries and the likelihood that they’ll catch on fire. This week, Northeastern also announced a new addition to the course catalog: “Speak Now: Gender & Storytelling in Taylor Swift’s Eras.” The class is likely to fulfill Swiftie’s “wildest dreams.”
