Hoaxilla #284 - Ludwig Leichhardt - Verschollen in Australien

Hoaxilla - Der skeptische Podcast aus Hamburg

Was geschah mit dem Deutschen Ludwig Leichhardt, der 1848 bei dem Versuch den australischen Kontinent von Osten nach Westen zu durchqueren spurlos verschwand? Wurden er und seine Begleiter Opfer extremer Wetterlagen?War der Expeditionstrupp falsch ausgerüstet? Oder wurde die Gruppe von australischen Ureinwohnern angegriffen, weil sie unwissentlich ein Heiligtum entweihten? Wir versuchen den Weg Ludwigs Leichhardts nachzuzeichnen und dabei zu erklären, warum man der Deutsche in Australien jedem bekannt ist, aber in der Heimat gänzlich unbekannt blieb. Zum HOAXILLA Merchandise geht es hier. Hier gibt es Informationen dazu, wie man uns unterstützen kann.

Ach? Triumvirat für historisch inspirierte Humorvermittlung

Besser: unser "Protagonist" hat einige, sagen wir, menschliche Schwächen, die es ihm und seiner Crew nicht leichter machen, ihr wahnwitziges Ziel zu erreichen. Was das ist? Als erste ein Mal quer durch Australien marschieren. Das ist so wahnwitzig, wie es klingt. Aber hey, mit so nem Scheiß wird man halt berühmt.

New Books in German Studies

Andrew Wright Hurley talks about the life and afterlife of the Prussian explorer Ludwig Leichhardt, a man whose reputation has shifted to reflect the changing cultures of Australia and Germany over the past 160 years. Hurley is an associate professor in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Technology, Sydney. He’s the author of Ludwig Leichhardt’s Ghosts: The Strange Career of a Traveling Myth (Camden House, 2018).After the renowned Prussian scientist and explorer Ludwig Leichhardt left the Australian frontier in 1848 on an expedition to cross the continent, he disappeared without a trace. Andrew Hurley's book complicates that view by undertaking an afterlife biography of "the Humboldt of Australia." Although Leichhardt's remains were never located, he has been sought and textually "found" many times over, particularly in Australia and Germany. He remains a significant presence, a highly productive ghost who continues to "haunt" culture.Michael F. Robinson is professor of history at Hillyer College, University of Hartford. He's the author of The Coldest Crucible: Arctic Exploration and American Culture (University of Chicago Press, 2006) and The Lost White Tribe: Scientists, Explorers, and the Theory that Changed a Continent (Oxford University Press, 2016).
