Han Lamers joined the Department of Philosophy, Classics, and the History of Art and Ideas in January 2018. He studied Classics at the University of Leiden (BA, MPhil) and Art History at KU Leuven (BA, MA) and holds a PhD (2013) from Leiden University. His research focuses on many aspects of the classical tradition, especially in early modern and modern Europe, as well as the history of (classical) scholarship.

Before coming to Oslo, Lamers was postdoctoral research fellow at the Humboldt-University of Berlin, the University of Ghent, and KU Leuven and received research fellowships from the Dutch Research Council (NWO), the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO), the Berlin Centre for the History of Knowledge (MPIWG), and the Volkswagen Foundation. He was guest editor of the European Review of History / Revue européenne d'histoire and is currently member of the editorial boards of the International Journal of the Classical Tradition and Recollection: Experimental Reflections on Texts, Images, and Ideas.

In addition to doing research, Lamers taught classes and courses in the fields of Classics and classical reception, Renaissance literature and history, and the history of Classics and Art History.
