It is framed within a Societal Health approach that emphasizes citizens' perspectives on health and disease.
Iscte-Health presentation (in Portuguese)
In this Initiative, I and Rafael Ribeiro coordinate the Group
• Respond to health challenges posed by the society, adopting preventive and health-promoting approaches, through its focus on the arts (e.g. performative, visual/design/architecture, literature, digital/electronic, cultural events).
• A space for the fusion of ideas, articulation of areas and frames of reference, for the co-creation of training initiatives, research, and grounded intervention, about the role and impact of the arts in health, through multidisciplinary teams and targeting different audiences in the community to inform public health policies.
Kama Muta lab is a research group studying the sudden feeling of oneness — of love, belonging, or union — with an individual person, a family, a team, a nation, nature, the cosmos, God, or a kitten. It is also often labeled as "being moved" or touched".
This group is coordinated by Thomas Schubert and Beate Seibt, from the Department of Psychology, University of Oslo, and Alan P. Fiske from the University of California, Los Angeles. Janis Zickfeld, with whom I also collaborated, has conducted his Ph.D. on this research topic, and two of my former Master's students have developed their dissertations in this line of research. Several more members are involved in this international project..
