Doris Jetzinger, BA MA



Teaching at the University of Vienna


Doris Jetzinger is an archaeologist working as a university assistant (Prae-Doc) at the University of Vienna since July 2021, where she also completed her Bachelor and Master studies. Her research focuses on landscape- and geoarchaeology and in particular on the interdisciplinary linking of the two disciplines. Accordingly, she is working on the creation of a landscape biography of the Kreuttal in the Weinviertel region in the course of her dissertation project "Life of a Landscape", applying an interdisciplinary methodological approach. The focus is on studying the development of the landscape over the millennia and the formation processes involved.
