Tagung, Konferenz, Kongress, Symposium

As Vienna is hosts the 60th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, this symposium brings together artists, academics, diplomats, journalists and politicians to discuss the significance of the Eurovision Song Contest for cultural, economic and political relations among Europeans and between Europe and the world. It features three keynote speakers who have performed in the Eurovision Song Contest and had political careers at the European and national levels.

The symposium is a result of the project “Eurovision: A History of Europe through Popular Music,” which is being undertaken in the Department of East European History of the University of Vienna with funding from the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions of the European Commission. The sponsors of the symposium are the Information Office of the European Parliament in Austria, the European Commission, the Embassy of Australia and the University of Vienna.
