Crosslocations began on 1st September 2016, and we spent the last three months putting the project together and appointing our staff. The core primary research is being done by anthropologists: Sarah Green (the leader of the project); three postdoctoral researchers: Joseph Viscomi (specialist on history of Mediterranean, Egypt and Italy particular), Carl Rommel (specialist on Egypt), and Phaedra Douzina-Bakalaki (specialist in Greece and Turkey); and one PhD student: Samuli Lähteenaho (specialist in the Levant, and Lebanon in particular). There is also a photographer, Lena Malm, who is documenting visual elements of the project; a cartographer, Philippe Rekacewicz, who will assist with finding innovative ways to map the locating regimes; a series of experts from a variety of disciplines who will provide knowledge on topics from trade across the Mediterranean in the Classical period to the structure of the submarine telecommunications cables in the seabed, to how the legal regimes of the region work. And last but not least, there is our project coordinator, Hilja Aunela, who will keep the whole project running smoothly.
