Subject:  Crash

From:  [log in to unmask] (Paolo Palladino)

I am working with a group here in the Institute for Cultural Research on
the notion of the 'crash'. I think there is something interesting to say
the subject from the perspective of ecological modelling about the
normalisation of the unexpected etc... Does anyone have any thoughts
about, and references to, the historical origins of the term 'crash' to
describe the sudden collapse of a population?
