About Madeleine...

Dear Postcrossers,
Teaching languages and literature is what I have been doing for some decades in Paris, the place where I live with my husband and close to my son .
History of Ancient civilizations , Ethnology ( rituals and ceremonies) are my fields of Research and I am very interested in knowing a lot about your country :
its Mythology and legends,
its traditions and customs,
its cultural and artistic heritage ,
its famous women and men in all the fields of Knowledge ( Art, Sciences, Literature , History , Ethnology, Archeology ...)
The feasts ( religious or heathen ) celebrated all the year round in your country and/or in the place you live .
The way of living of your ancestors in the past, things that have disappeared and others that have remained: all those aspects of your country is of great interest for me .
Your personal way of life in your family is quite interesting as well .

illuminated letters are part of my interests as well.
Palekh illustrations and images of Russian fairy tales .

I somtimes receive postcards showing famous female scientists of the Rachel Ignotofsky collection. I really like them : here are the ones I have already got : Mary Agnes Chase / Florence Bascom / Elizabeth Blackwell / Dorothy Hodgkin (3 times) / Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin / Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard / Katherine Johnson / Wang Zhenyi / Lilian Gilbreth / Rosalind Franklin / Lise Meitner / Alice Bail / Rachel Carson / Vera Rubin / Jane Goodall ( twice ) / Emmy Noether / Annie Easley / Maria Goeppert-Mayer / Mary Anning/ Hertha Ayrton / Esther Lederberg / Ada Lovelace / Sau Lan Wu/ Karen Horney / Katia Krafft / Nettie Stevens / Hedy Lamarr / Hypatia/Gerty Cori / Patricia Bath

From Germany , I have already received " Loki Schmidt" portrait ( three times) and Sophie Scholl ( three times) / Lise Meitner / Melitta Bentz ( three times) Margarete Steiff / Maria Sibylla Merian / Bertha Benz / Clara Schumann. I wish I could receive other famous people. Thank you !
