Scholars in Department II are welcome to consult Josephine on questions concerning layout, bibliographical issues, image permissions and related copyright matters, image quality improvement and other graphic issues, collaboration with publishers, and workflows. If a research project might be suited to publication in the form of an MPIWG Preprint, Josephine can also advise on the procedures and carry out its production.

She studied Theatre and Media Studies, management and administration for academic institutions, Edition Philology and achieved her PhD in Cultural Studies. Since 1993, she has published regularly within the field of dance research with a focus on the development of contemporary dance and performance aesthetics, and another on cultural contexts of dance pursuing interrelationships between traditional dance rites and their traces in contemporary dance culture.
