 WHY  To share empirically based research about the affective meanings of colour

Colour and Emotions: A Psychological Perspective

Our linguistic, cultural, and perceptual environments are rich in colour associations and meanings. We feel blue, see red, turn green with envy. But the same colours can also signal different emotional messages to different people. Join us at the next Fluorescent Friday to learn from color psychology researchers about how colour-emotion associations can be detected in controlled laboratory settings.

  • Dr. Domicele Jonauskaite, Faculty of Psychology, University of Vienna in Austria
  • Déborah Epicoco, Doctoral student in experimental colour psychology at the University of Lausanne, Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, Institute of Psychology, Switzerland

FLUORESCENT FRIDAYS is a platform for university students from all disciplines to network with color professionals and fellow students, and to explore cutting-edge information about color’s role in our lives and applications in the world. 

Global Student Chapter: The long range goal is to build a global student chapter that positions color as a multidimensional STEAM model (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math), sharing up-to-date color research by scientists, artists, designers, industry professionals, and university students.21st century color communication requires a commitment to building bridges for sharing resources, cultivating mentors, and creating new opportunities. With up-to-date information and useful tools, students become the next generation of leaders in ever-evolving color related disciplines.
