About this book

Authenticity in our globalized world is a paradox. This collection examines how authenticity relates to cultural products, looking closely at how a particular "ethnic" food, or genre of popular music, or indigenous religious belief attains its aura of originality, when all traditional cultural products are invented in a certain time and place.

Reviews

'The idea of authenticity is an important one to explore in an academic setting and The Paradox of Authenticity in a Globalized World will be a useful tool in cultural and media studies, anthropology, and food studies. What really sets this edited volume apart is the inclusion of scholars who are not in academia - this adds a nice, contextualized angle in the fields of music, law, information studies, and museums.' - Jessica Mudry, Ryerson University, Canada
