JAKE NABEL APPONTED ASSISTANT PROFESSOR IN CAMS

The Department of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Jake Nabel as Assistant Professor of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies as of July 1, 2019. Jake received his Ph.D. in Classics from Cornell University in 2017, with a dissertation entitled “The Arsacids of Rome: Royal Hostages and Roman-Parthian Relations in the First Century CE.” He is a historian of ancient Rome and its relations with the empires of pre-Islamic Iran, and his research centers on interstate affairs between the early Principate and the Parthian empire, Rome’s imperial peer on the Iranian plateau. In all his work, he draws on both Greco-Roman literary texts and Near Eastern sources to promote the fuller integration of ancient Persia into the study of the classical Mediterranean. His interest in Near Eastern sources and in the digital humanities led to my creation of Parthian Sources Online (parthiansources.com), a digital collection of texts for the study of the Parthian empire
