Novi Djenar is Associate Professor in Indonesian Studies with research interests in topics related to Indonesian language and society, youth language practices, stylistics of youth fiction, person reference and language and place. Her work on Indonesian youth language practices in teen fiction and conversation examines the ways in which young people’s practices are connected to those in wider society and how they contribute to changes in the Indonesian language. Novi’s current research on language and place draws on interactional sociolinguistics and phenomenological approaches to place, and shows how meanings of place emerge ‘fleetingly’ as people engage in ordinary talk.
