Debates on authenticity are at the core of both culture studies and tourism research. Tourists often seem to embrace artificial displays, reconstructions and commercial events with enthusiasm. Folklore displays continue showing the same colourful versions of an idealised past year after year. Narratives, frozen in time, are re-enacted for paying customers. But might this version of the past get outdated? Or, should folklore displays be preserved in original form, since how we present ourselves and revive our traditions is just as much our heritage as our traditions once were when they where part of everyday life?

Ključne riječi
