Every day is a school day...

I'm delighted to have been offered the opportunity to run a short course on Eurovision at City Lit in London in March. The course will chart the highs and lows of 60 years of Eurovision and will begin on Sunday 15 March from 14:00-17:00. It will take place each Sunday until 29 March.

Specific topics that will be covered:

- Gender and sexual identity
- Politics
- Social change
- Broadcasting history
- National identity and nation branding
- Culture

More details can be found here - go on, sign up! There might even be a special guest from Eurovision itself...


  1. This sounds brilliant - I just wish I lived in London and not Bristol!

    I'll keep an eye out for the distance learning version... :)

  2. Love the idea of this - like Martin, I just wish I lived in London (or you were doing the sessions in Manchester)!

    Some colleges and universities are now offering courses like this as MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course) which allow people from all over the world to come together - not unlike Eurovision itself!

    Please Please Please, look at the options for re-running this course as a MOOC :-)
