Certificate Awarded

Matthew Davis

Matthew Davis graduated with his Ph.D. in English from Texas A&M University. His dissertation looks at the changing semantic scope of the word apostelesse in the fifteenth century in representative texts, and how those changes reflect the tensions of an interconnected network of social, political, and religious interests that the cultural "packet" represented by apostelesse both affected and was affected by throughout the fifteenth century. His broader research interests include cultural transmission through translation in Old English literature, medieval and early modern dramatic texts and the tensions between text and performance, and material textuality in all its forms. He is currently researching ways to rapidly build large collections of imaged and transcribed texts with an eye towards what such data can tell us about the book as an edition, rather than as accidentally digitally canonical texts.

Luis Meneses

Luis Meneses completed his Digital Humanities Certificate and graduated with his Ph.D. in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University in 2013. His research aims to introduce changes into digital libraries that will help reflect their dynamic nature. These changes and new features will introduce the notion of context, external metadata obtained from user-generated media, into the framework of a digital library to discover the current state of the environment and incorporate these attributes to respond to information queries. More importantly, his research addresses how ongoing events and their characteristics can be used to reorganize the contents of a digital collection.
