||The provincial government of Lower Austria has announced an exhibition about the environmental history of the Danube. It will be held from May-October, 2010 in the 18th century parish house in Ardagger-Markt, a small village adjacent to the Danube close to the Upper Austrian border. The Centre for Environmental History has been invited to submit a proposal and is now curating the exhibition. The show will feature historical artifacts on floods, river regulation, habitat changes and land-use in alluvial areas, to name but the most important themes. In cooperation with the University of Life Sciences and Natural Resources (BOKU), the Institute will provide not only the exhibition but also produce a catalogue with scholarly articles on the various subjects. In close co-operation with the provincial archive we hope to interest a wider public in the environmental history of the Danube, showing how humans have dealt with these highly dynamic ecosystems. Fishes and plants will be used to offer non-anthropocentric narratives which should allow visitors to reflect their own relationship to “nature”. The project is lead by Verena Winiwarter, with Martin Schmid as Co-Leader.
