Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademic

Within the context of a special issue on National Character this article deals (for the greatest part) with the most popular skating phenomenon in Dutch (recent) history: the Tour along the Eleven Cities in Frisia. As an experiment in anthropological interpretation of the immense popularity of this sport's event the authors introduce and apply here Victor Turner's anthropological model of the ritual process (including the concepts of liminality, anti-structure and communitas).
