RESEARCH PROJECTS

Digital Humanities:

Chicana Por Mi Raza: Mapping the Hidden History of Chicana Feminism. This multi-phased Public Humanities project has been ongoing since 2009. It involves:



  1. Republishing out of print materials and books;

  2. Scanning primary archival materials, many of which are in private collections (newspapers, leaflets and other material culture);

  3. Conducting, collecting and Digitizing oral histories;

  4. Designing an educational website to house oral histories and digital archives and to provide an interactive access point to oral histories, material culture, and secondary sources documenting the development of Chicana feminist thought

The Chicana por mi Raza Digital Archive has collected over 1,000 documents and 40 oral history interviews. We are currently developing a data management system that will make this collection available via login to researchers, teachers, students, independent scholars, and community education initiatives.

Public Humanities:

“El Museo del Norte” The Latina/o Museum and Cultural Center Project: A Partnership between the UM Latina/o Studies Program and Fronteras Norteñas, a Public History organization in Detroit (2009-present). Since 2011, El Museo del Norte has sponsored yearly “pop-up museums” and dia de los muertos ofrendas in public spaces throughout Latina/o Detroit. These historical displays are created using community archives and local storytelling. In 2013, El Museo del Norte acquired exhibition and office space at the Boulevard House, a new settlement home project that focuses community development through culture and the arts.
