Jonah Mixon-Webster urgently considers the poetics of space and body, of race and region, of sexuality and class in the present day within the architecture of the current collective crisis and imagination. To take up space in an experimental way, through lyric, sound, and conceptual art, this collection activates the contentious trope of “The Real Nigga” as zombie (embodiment of the thing already dead), linguistic substrata (the basis and site of identity through language formation and synthesis), and as precursor for colonizing archetypes.

In the Latinx comics community, there is much to celebrate, with more Latinx comic book artists than ever before. Tales from la Vida celebrate this space by bringing together more than eighty contributions by extraordinary Latinx creators, showcasing the huge variety of styles and worldviews of today’s Latinx comic book and visual creators. Taken individually and together, these creators—including such legendary artists as Jaime and Gilbert Hernandez, Roberta Gregory, and Kat Fajardo—and their works show the world that when it comes to Latinx comics, there are no limits to matters of content and form.

Weather Inventions

“First marvel; then record.” This tempered revision of Wordsworth’s famous definition of poetry as a spontaneous overflow of powerful emotion recollected in tranquility serves as a useful guide to Emily Rosko’s Weather Inventions. The poems in Rosko’s third collection capture an enduring sense of wonder in the face of nature alongside the scientific impulse to observe and measure. The poems in Rosko’s Weather Inventions chart humanity’s enduring attachments to weather in science and art.
