Abstract

This book provides a unique and intriguing insight into current debates concerning the relationship between nation and state as well as the political management of international image in today’s Europe through an examination of debates on nation branding and the Eurovision Song Contest. Europe is a contested construct and its boundaries are subject to redefinition. This work aims to advance critical thinking about contemporary nation branding and its relationship to, and influence on, nation building. In particular it focusses on key identity debates that the Eurovision Song Contest engendered in Estonia in the run-up to EU accession. The Eurovision Song Contest is an event which is often dismissed as musically and culturally inferior. However, this work demonstrates that it has the capacity to shed light on key identity debates and illuminate wider socio-political issues. Using a series of in-depth interviews with political elites, media professionals and opinion leaders, this book is a valuable contribution to the growing field of research on nation branding and the Eurovision Song Contest.

Abstract

Deutschland sucht: den Superstar, Popstars oder auch den Finalteilnehmer für den Eurovision Song Contest. Musikalische Wettbewerbe in der populären Musik fesseln ein Millionenpublikum. Obwohl in der Vergangenheit Wettbewerbe oft entscheidend für die Weiterentwicklung der populären Musik wie auch der Kunstmusik waren, haben sich weder Musik- noch Kulturwissenschaften bisher ausführlich mit dem Thema auseinander gesetzt. Der Band untersucht Wettbewerbe, die aktuell Schlagzeilen machen, knüpft jedoch auch Verbindungen zur Geschichte dieser Form und zu vergleichbaren Events in anderen Kulturen.
