Worlding Englishes
— RISD Research
    2023-Present
Worlding Englishes is an upcoming repository of the different varieties of English spoken aroundt he world. Ensivioned as a living archive of these World Englishes, the digital project intends to complicate ideas of linguistic standardization, nativity, and “appropriateness”, among other ethnoracial traces of British colonialism.

Housed digitally, the archive will contain an open and searchable archive of World English speech samples, meta-commentary and reflections from individual contributors on their experiences with these linguistic registers, along with an evolving body of digital and physical thinking-art objects and experiences that invite audiences to contemplate and play with the contemporary uses and avatars of English.

The project is funded by the Rhode Island School of Design through the SPUR Fund
