Reconceptualizing object authenticity

AbstractThe study of tourism has made authenticity a scholarly issue but without even a hint of consensus about what the concept represents. Is it a property of toured objects and events, or a state of mind, or a mode of being toward tourism? Is it objective or experiential, universal or personal, in the eye of the beholder or defined by hosts or marketers? This paper explores all these questions by surveying tourism literature. It focuses on object authenticity, a term used for the genuineness of artifacts and events. It concludes that scholars should abandon the concept and the term because there is no common ground as to their existence, meaning, or importance.
