Blackwell Companion to Phonology [via Wiley]
The Blackwell Companion to Phonology is a major reference work drawing together 124 new contributions from leading scholars in the field. Led by a team of renowned international scholars, the Companion represents a diverse range of approaches and methodologies to key phenomena in phonological research. In contrast to other handbooks and reference works currently available for phonology, these volumes focus on phenomena and case studies that highlight past and ongoing debates in the field. Interdisciplinary connections, such as those with the social and computational sciences, are covered, as well as statistical and experimental techniques. The Companion will be a touchstone for future phonological theorists, giving an overview of data and insights which any theory of phonology should be able to cover.

Bracero History Archive [via Center for History and New Media at Georgetown University]
Started in 1942, the Bracero Program brought millions of Mexican guest workers to the United States, and over the next two decades, more than 4 million Mexicans came to work in the country. This public history resource from the Center for History and New Media at Georgetown University brings together oral histories and artifacts pertaining to the program. Visitors can read the “About” section to learn more about the program and its legacy and then move on to browse the documents. The document archive can be searched in its entirety, or users can also move through areas that include “Images”, “Documents”, and “Oral Histories”. Educators will want to look over the “Teaching” area, as it features three different learning activities which draw on the archive’s documents. Also, the “Resources” area includes a video tutorial on how to use the archive effectively and several interview questions for those who might know some former Bracero workers.
