Karina Muñiz-Pagán, United States
The following essay is a written and edited version of the L’AiR Arts Symposium:
I arrived at the L’AiR Arts residency with the goal of researching and writing about the narrative
power of place: of Paris then and now. As a writer, urbanist, and community organizer, I wanted
to explore the geohistory of Paris in the 1920s, how artists shaped the city and how the creative
power of place influenced art and culture on a global scale. I wanted to understand Paris...

Domestic Workers Right to Write
A bilingual anthology edited and translated by Karina Muñiz-Pagán and Argelia Muñoz Larroa.
