Students and faculty at St. John’s University are invited to support their faculty and staff – and enjoy an exciting, performative exploration of the English language – at QueensEnglishToday @Queensmuseum.mp3. Please read the following for more information:

The promotion of linguistic diversity and expressive plurality is a hallmark of public justice, especially in New York, the city that never speaks one and the same language. This “Queens English” poetry/prose/performance at Queens Museum, the sequel to QueensEnglishToday.mp3 at CUNY Graduate Center, explores and enacts the world of dynamic Englishing and languaging, its polyphonic futurity.
