65. Melanie Schiller on Music and Nationalism in Germany
My guest today is Melanie Schiller, an Assistant Professor of Media Studies and Popular Music at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. Her research combines critical theory, cultural studies, and media studies and focuses particularly on the relationship between popular music and nationalism and populism. In 2018 she published Soundtracking Germany: Popular Music and National Identity with Rowman & Littlefield. Currently, Melanie is part of a collaborative international research project on “Popular Music and the Rise of Populism in Europe, 2018-2022”.
