Gil Gambash  is the co-founder and director of the Haifa Centre for Mediterranean History, which was established in 2016. Trained originally as a Roman historian in Princeton’s classics department, his historiographic methodologies combine philological and archaeological approaches, and beyond textual and material sources he specializes in numismatics, epigraphy, and papyrology. His research interests center on ancient Mediterranean societies, synthesizing aspects of imperialism, economy, culture, and environment. His current project surveys channels through which the ancient southern Levant was connected to dominant Mediterranean networks, and functioned as a significant Mediterranean player, choosing the mode and volume of its exposure to the ‘Corrupting Sea’, and often initiating and dictating processes of regional significance.
