Rosa van Hensbergen

Rosa van Hensbergen joins Yale as an Assistant Professor in the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures. van Hensbergen’s research to-date has looked at the language that makes bodies move: dance notation, verbal instruction, stage directions. In the period van Hensbergen works on – the immediate post-war to the contemporary – there is an opening up of techniques and formats for the ‘recording’ of movement, legible in creative communities dispersed throughout the globe. van Hensbergen received the PhD in English from Emmanuel College, Cambridge.
