Eurovision: Re-visioning Europe - EUST2112

Year - 2018

The Eurovision Song Contest began in 1956 as a for-television event, designed to foster cultural diplomacy and peace in Europe. Today, it is watched by over 200 million people and even Australia is in on the act. Beyond its Euro-pop veneer, however, Eurovision has become a vehicle of soft power in Europe and a barometer of its political crises. In this unit, we examine the political and cultural history of Eurovision, and explore why it is so attractive to Australians.
