As anyone who has watched Eurovision can attest, the music festival often becomes a spectacle of nationalisms. It is an international space onto which all participating nations proclaim a distinct and valuable musical and artistic contribution to the world stage. Eurovision is not the only media event that allows for such nationalist performances, however. This panel will focus on the performativity of nationalism in Eastern European media events, film, and literature, among other artistic performances. Focusing on these texts, this panel aims to create dialogue between performances and the mediums of their development.
