José Luis Gasch Tomás

Inés Roldán de Montaud

José Luis Gasch Tomás was born in Ciudad Real, Spain. He achieved a PhD in History at the European University Institute (EUI) of Florence (Italy). Gasch-Tomás is a Marie Curie Fellow (Experienced Researcher – Initial Training Network) at the Institute of History (Instituto de Historia – IH) of the Spanish National Research Council (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas – CSIC), Madrid (Spain).

Training and professional experience

Bachelor’s Degree in History at the Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) in Ciudad Real (Spain), class group 2002-2007. The Ministry of Education of Spain granted me with the “Award for Outstanding Achievement in the degree of History” for obtaining the highest academic record of all Spanish universities in the degree of History.

Masters Degree “Europe, the Mediterranean World and its Atlantic Diffusion: Methods and Theories for Research, 1492-2000” at the Universidad Pablo de Olavide of Seville (Spain) (2008).

Gasch-Tomás did the Viva Voce for a doctoral thesis entitled “Global Trade, Circulation and Consumption of Asian Goods in the Atlantic World. The Manila Galleons and the Social Elites of Mexico and Seville (1580-1640)” on October 29, 2012, at the European University Institute (EUI) of Florence (Italy). He did his PhD from 2008 to 2012.

Research experience

José Luis Gasch Tomás has developed his research by participating in several research projects during his PhD, and currently within the within the research project ForSEADiscovery (PITN – GA – 2013 – 607545). His research is the result of an interdisciplinary work which involves the combining of methods and techniques from economic history, social history, and cultural history.

His doctoral thesis addressed the Manila Galleons trade, the re-exportation of Asian manufactured goods – especially Chinese silk and porcelain – from New Spain to Seville, and consumption of Asian goods among elites of New Spain and Andalusia. This study has allowed exploring the commoditisation and formation of a market of Asian goods in the Spanish empire before the consumption of such goods expanded in most Europe in the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Currently, Gasch Tomás’ research is dealing with shipbuilding and timber trade in the early modern era.
