Abstract

This collection of essays aims to question the notion of authenticity in an interdisciplinary setting, partly to examine it as an abstract concept, partly to display specific examples of the search for the authentic in its seemingly infinite guises. With participants from a wide array of disciplines including literary studies, politics, history, sociology, philosophy, media studies, arts, architecture and musicology, the book stresses the need for a common forum in which it is possible to debate notions of authenticity across the disciplines.
