Untying the Language, Body and Place Connection: Linguistic variation and social style in a Copenhagen community of practice

Pia Quist, associate professor at the Department of Nordic Research of the University of Copenhagen, is one of the researchers I've been introduced to, although we didn't find the time to meet and talk, we exchanged a couple of e-mails and I managed to look at the fascinating work she does in the field of sociolinguistics, urban vernacular, gender and language, youth and language, as well as place, social and geographic mobility.

One of her research papers is "Untying the Language, Body and Place Connection : Linguistic variation and social style in a Copenhagen community of practice."
