Colors and Emotions Across Cultures and Individuals

Why do we see red, feel blue, or turn green with envy? In this talk, Domicele Jonauskaite, PhD, will present the most recent scientific findings on the links between colors and emotions. Most of the data have been collected within the framework of their International Color-Emotion Association survey, running in 80 countries and 46 languages, with more than 100 collaborators and over 15’000 participants.

More recently, she has expanded her research to aesthetics and blindness. Domicele Jonauskaite is a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Vienna in Austria. Previously, she obtained a PhD degree in Psychology from the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, and her contribution to science has been recognized with several prestigious awards.
