My name is Maike Vogt-Luerssen. I was born on 24/03/1956 in Wilhelmshaven, Germany. Since 1995 I have been living in Australia. In 1985 I finished my university studies in the subjects history, biology and education at the Philipps-University of Marburg on Lahn, Germany, with the high distinction "magna cum laude". I had the great fortune to study under the surely best historians of my time, Walter Heinemeyer and his son Karl, Hans K. Schulze, Peter Krüger and Karl Christ, whose love for history was contagious.Thanks to the generous financial support of my husband Dr. Holger Luerssen with whom I also created this new web-site, I am able to follow my own great passion for history. I have specialised in the history of the everyday life, women's history and art-history especially from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
