This travel-guide is an interesting read for all nature lovers, who are looking for year-round nature experiences in the eastern part of Austria. Christine contributed the animal, plant and landscape portrays as well as the „nature calendar“, which provides information on seasonal nature explorations.

Das Bild der Frau um 1900
Around the beginning of the 20th century the perception of women was greatly shaped by contemporary natural sciences. Interestingly, the scientific believes of this time were employed both by the advocates of the „natural role of women“ – mother, wife and housewife – as well as the emerging women’s movement. In this book Christine investigates how this reflected in respective magazines published around 1900.
