Background

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 the classical tradition, Renaissance literature and history, and the history of Classics and Art History.

He is also Research Fellow at the Department of Art History of the KU Leuven and academic member of the Heterodox Academy.

Ongoing research initiatives (selection)

  • Together with Bettina-Reitz-Joosse (Groningen), Lamers is coordinating a research project studying the uses of the classical languages under Italian Fascism. The project is part of the Anchoring Innovation research agenda of OIKOS and is also supported by the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Oslo. More information can be found on the project's website. PhD student: Nicolò Bettegazzi. Research assistant: Victoria Mostue.
  • Together with Barbara Baert (Leuven), Lamers is coordinating a research initiative entitled "Kairós, or the Right Moment: Nachleben and Iconology". In this context, he studies the early modern lexicography of kairós and the relationship between the concepts of kairós and Nachleben in the modern scholarship. This project is supported by a grant of the University of Leuven. PhD student: Stephanie Heremans.
  • Together with Johannes Rössler (Bern), Lamers is preparing an anthology (in English translation) of the work of the Czech-German historian Anton Heinrich Springer (1825-1891) (Anton Springer on Art, Art History, and the Classical Tradition). His booklet-length essay on Springer's idea of an 'afterlife of antiquity' (Nachleben der Antike), with a translation of Springer's seminal "Das Nachleben der Antike im Mittelalter", will be published in the series Studies in Iconology (Peeters, Leuven) early 2019. The publication is supported by the Volkswagen Foundation and the Research Foundation - Flanders.
