New on Early View: “Constructing Hybridized Authenticities in the Gourmet Food Truck Scene” by Cate Irvin #article #sssi #authenticity

There currently is great interest in authenticity in various social scientific disciplines, including sociology, marketing, and consumer studies. With her recent article “Constructing Hybridized Authenticities in the Gourmet Food Truck Scene” Cate Irvin contributes to these debates. Irvin’s analysis particularly highlights the fluidity of authenticity and thereby points and the temporary relations between the product, producers, the consumers and the spaces where the product is produced and consumed.
