E04 – Stock market crashes

Project within the CRC 923

Project E04: Threat communication, coping practices and financial market speculation. Stock market booms, crashes and knowledge practices (18th - 19th century)

Project E04 investigates the threat diagnosis related to the stock market crash that occurred in the second half of the 18th and 19th centuries as well as the subsequent coping practices that were implemented. Special attention is paid to the relevance of diachronic interdependencies. In concrete terms, the objective is to examine how knowledge about hyper-speculation and price crashes that had been accumulated to that point influenced threat diagnoses and coping practices in the context of stock market crashes. The project thus applies the threatened orders model to achieve a better understanding of the re-ordering that occurred in the financial and economic system of order in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Research interests:

  • History of knowledge and culture in the early modern period and the 19th century
  • Economic history in the 19th century
