Short summary
By means of hermeneutic source criticism, my paper investigates how the events of “Kiel 1969” gave rise to a myth. It concludes that the congress’s participants experienced “Kiel 1969” as the site of an enormously dense social interaction within their science. Most importantly, participants’ suggestive oral reports in the aftermath of the congress turned it into the “myth of Kiel”, which became an essential driving force of German-speaking geography’s modernization.
