Dr. Sanneke de Haan of the Department of Culture Studies was appointed as an endowed professor of psychiatry and philosophy at the Erasmus School of Philosophy and the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam on January 1st. The chair is made possible by the Foundation for Psychiatry and Philosophy, the Socrates Foundation and the Erasmus School of Philosophy.

The chair of Psychiatry and Philosophy focuses on the border area of psychiatry and philosophy, where important debates take place, such as between psychiatry as a scientific discipline and the social and cultural context of people and patients. The Erasmus School of Philosophy welcomed her with this interview (in Dutch) about her work and ambitions: Denk waar het pijn doet.

Sanneke de Haan will remain affiliated with TSHD for 4 days a week. We warmly congratulate her on this wonderful appointment.
