  • Profile

    Silke Hoppe studied cultural anthropology at the University of Amsterdam. She graduated 2009 (with distinction) on a research concerning the illness experiences of people who have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. After her master she worked in the field of disability studies. In 2010 she did research, which was funded by ZonMw, on the role of reciprocity in the illness experiences of people with Multiple Sclerosis. From 2011 till 2013 Silke worked as a junior lecturer at the department of Anthropology.


    Since 2013 she is a PhD student at the Partnership of Long-Term Care and Dementia. Her research will focus on the experiences of people with early-onset dementia and their families. She will analyse to what extent people can share those experiences with each other and which aspects remain unspoken.
