Pandemic Parenting Interview with Batnadiv Hakarmi, by Rachael Grad

I was teaching before the pandemic in 3 different places. During the pandemic, it was a real struggle to teach on zoom with kids at home. I didn’t go back to teaching until after lockdown was over because it was too difficult to get childcare. I used to teach art at Brandeis University in the summer and I really miss it. I found there isn’t that much flexibility in teaching so between lockdowns and quarantines, I transitioned to giving workshops and doing freelance editing. The work does take away from my art practice – it’s a constant juggle to make time and space. From the online exhibit: Pandemic Parenting, organized by Rachael Grad for the Museum of Motherhood.

With elements of fabulism, historical fiction, and eco-poetics, the story of two sisters who are displaced by violence and left to fend for themselves is a testament to how we can experience wonder, and even magic, after loss. Gloria Muñoz is a Colombian-American writer, literary translator, and advocate for multilingual literacy and writing.
