Dr. Deb Cunningham has  the Department of English and Modern Languages as assistant professor of Spanish.

She specializes in the transcription and translation of colonial Spanish manuscripts that are relevant to Texas history.  Her dissertation, The Exploration and Preliminary Colonization of the Seno Mexicano Under Don José de Escandón (1747-1749):  An Analysis Based on Primary Spanish Manuscripts, provides the first English translation of Escandón’s manuscripts documenting the exploration of modern-day south Texas along the Rio Grande.  She is currently  translating a series of manuscripts that predate Escandón’s activities in the region.   

Dr. Cunningham was a Regent’s Fellow at Texas A&M, and she received a grant from the Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage Project at the University of Houston to support her research.
