Fredericton, NB: Sociology on the Rink, Part 1
The way that people interact with each other on the outdoor rink is pretty interesting. Unlike most of our social situations, outdoor rinks are places of self-organized play: no bosses, no defined roles, no time limits. Outdoor rinks are experiments in communication and cooperation.
We spoke to UNB sports sociologist and historian Fred Mason to hear his perspective on how outdoor rinks are sociologically significant places. This podcast is part one of our tour of Fredericton’s outdoor rinks, in conversation with Dr. Mason en route. LISTEN UP!!!!!
