Now Available: sx salon 12 (May 2013)


Our spring issue of sx salon features a discussion of the volcanic eruption of Mont Pelée in Martinique. This discussion, guest-curated by Lizabeth Paravisini-Gebert, considers the literature, images, and rhetoric surrounding the 1902 eruption and makes connections to other Caribbean natural and manmade disasters. Featuring essays by Elaine Savory, Kevin Meehan, Paulette Richards, Ivette Romero, and Paravisini-Gebert, this discussion of Mont Pelée is inspired in part by the three-year Visual Life of Catastrophic History project in progress in the pages of Small Axe (see “The Visual Life of Catastrophic History: A Small Axe Project Statement” in Small Axe 34 [March 2011] for a full description of the project). Here the discussants consider both the visual and literary life (perhaps even lives?) of Mont Pelée before and after 1902.
This issue also includes: poetry by Kamau Brathwaite, Xavier Navarro, Richard Georges, and Simone Leid; an interview with Elaine Savory; and reviews ofKingston Noir, Diana McCaulay’s Huracan and Wayne Brown’s The Scent of the Past. Please enjoy and share.
