It addresses how Copenhagen school children in two different schools use language to handle their social everyday lives and how this organizing involves constructions and ascriptions of identities and social stereotypes. My research is driven by an interest in learning more about the experience of being part of today´s diverse school environments. Therefore, I approach my data with an emphasis on the participant perspective and focus analytically on the ways in which the participants in my study enact and construct social difference(s) through situated interaction. Based on an understanding of such practices and experiences as both shaped by and shaping society I relate my analyses to ongoing social stratification processes in the Danish society.
