Who? Three University of Ottawa Criminology students: Yadgar, Hymers and Scott.
What? A comparison of two of Ottawa's largest shopping centres, Rideau and Bayshore, to find their similarities and differences in the context of late modernity, as well as viewing cultural criminology concepts in action.
Where? 50 Rideau Street (Rideau Centre) and 100 Bayshore Drive (Bayshore Mall) in Ottawa, Ontario.
Why? Both shopping centres are expanding, yet, their locations are situated where there are high rates of immigrant populations, homelessness, poverty and students. As such, we observed these malls and their function in accordance to their respective locations.
How? By observing alone and as a group in both locations.
