Chicana por Mi Raza is an ongoing digital humanities project that collects and archives materials about Chicana feminist activists during the late 20th century. Headed by Maria Cotera, Associate Professor of American Studies at the University of Michigan, and filmmaker and doctoral student Linda Garcia Merchant, the project includes contributions by numerous graduate and undergraduate students as well. At the heart of Chicana por Mi Raza is a series of powerful interviews with Chicana women from across the United States who were involved in the Chicana Civil Rights Movement during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. In these interviews, women describe their experiences growing up and the events, people, and experiences that shaped their activism. Clips from these powerful oral histories can be found in the Timelines section and are tagged by subject. The site also includes archival material donated by the interviewees - including photographs, pamphlets, and student poetry.

The human imagination would seem to recognize few boundaries when thinking about interesting forms of transportation, especially some of the rather creative ideas (both proposed and realized) that are contained within this novel and compelling online exhibit created by the staff at the Harmer E. Davis Transportation Library at the University of California at Berkeley. Many of the futuristic designs highlighted within this exhibit were envisioned as ways to overcome existing transportation problems, such as distance, space considerations, and other key factors. The pieces of material culture (such as advertisements, design renderings, and the like) contained here are divided into several sections, such as automotive, helicopter, monorails, and the aptly named "Oddities" area. For transportation buffs or those with an interest in the history of technology, the "Oddities" area should not be missed. Here visitors will find an illustration of the proposed "flying saucer bus" and the intriguing "transplanetary subway", which was supposed to have stretched from New York to Los Angeles.
