Blurb/Shorttext:
The common view holds that Eurovision is a contest aiming to produce cultural uniformity and unable to perform ‘our’ national distinctiveness. Arguing against such a claim, the present study attempts to identify the ways in which national identities are reproduced on stage by focusing on the Turkish and Greek case. Nationalism is not merely a political ideology or a stir of irrational feelings but rather a way of thinking which shapes and in turn is shaped by the social milieu. It goes without saying that national identities are neither natural facts nor fixed but evolving and fluid categories. Departing from a social constructionist point of view, the study attempts to examine how Turks and Greeks particularly produce their identities through the discursive reproduction of their national myths and culture. Claims ‘we’ make about ‘us’ and ‘others’ constitute ‘our’ identity and signify the naturalization of nationalism as a particular language of making sense of the social world.
