Curriculum vitae

Frits Naerebout was born in Delft, November 15, 1956. After secondary school (Gymnasium A, Stanislascollege, Delft) he went on to study history at Leiden University, specialising in ancient and medieval history, and the philosophy of history. He got his MA in 1980. Almost immediately afterwards he started teaching at the History Department of Leiden University.In 1990, he moved from Leiden University to the Dutch Open University, and from ancient history to the much wider field of cultural studies. In 1993 he studied at the Institute for Pre- and Protohistory of the University of Amsterdam. Since 2000 he was, intermittently, teaching at Leiden University again, as well as at the Open University. In 2003 he moved back to Leiden, and to teaching ancient history. Frits Naerebout got his PhD in Leiden in 1997 on a dissertation dealing with dance and ancient Greek religion, Attractive performances. Ancient Greek dance: three preliminary studies (Amsterdam 1997 Gieben). For a full curriculum, please refer to: http://www.oudegeschiedenis.info/
