Episode 9, we are nearly in double digits!
If you think that Eurovision is just silly costumes and awful songs, prepare to have your mind changed. Dr Jess Carniel joined us to talk about her research on Eurovision in Australia and what she has found out about why people love it (it’s not what you think). Jess also talked about why she think it’s important to follow your interests in research and to be ready to change direction quickly in the middle of a project. She also shared her advice on writing for publication, building a research network and making your ideas and work accessible for everyone. There’s plenty of Eurovision and #librarylove chat as well !
In this episode we discuss:
- Jess’s favourite Eurovision song: Svetlana Loboda – Be My Valentine (Anti-Crisis Girl)
- (one of) Sally’s favourite Eurovision songs: Cezar – It’s My Life
- Papers written by Jess
- Chow Down to Eurovision 2013-2015 by Jason at Don’t Boil the Sauce
- Livraria Lelo, Porto
- The Interval Act at the 2016 competition is a four minute crash course on how to write a winning Eurovision song, brilliant!:
