Saude Aude research project on 'Crowd Dynamics in Financial Markets'

The aim of this project is to examine how, why and with what consequences ideas originating from the field of crowd psychology have inspired and continue to inspire understandings of financial markets. This is studied sociologically in three subprojects (two historical, one ethno-graphic).The project contributes to existing research within social studies of finance and the sociology of crowds, but it also invites market professionals, scholars and observers of financial markets to reflect on the use of crowd psychology and its possible performative effects.
