In this episode, Shiloh is joined by Rory and Rosie to discuss Eurovision’s place in the academic world! Shiloh and Rory have both written academic papers on the contest, and Rosie is an academic who likes to nerd about Eurovision in her spare time.
They discuss their own research, as well as sharing some other academic work around the contest that they find interesting, including peer-reviewed articles and fan projects! They particularly discuss elements of identity and international relations as they appear in the contest.
Please note that this episode uses the word “queer” in an academic and reclaimed way throughout.
