Saudade, an ambivalent phenomenon in the Portuguese soul

Researchers: 
Stephanie Barros Coimbra, Gaby Marinho Ribeiro & Isabelle Albert, University of Luxemburg, unit INSIDE

Brief description: 
Definitions of words, concepts or phenomena change from one culture to another but also within similar cultures. This study is meant to analyse the differences between the diverse portuguese speaking populations regarding the word “Saudade”, which is a very well known word embedded in the lusofone cultures. How do people living in a portuguese speaking country define and feel the word “ saudade” compared to those who live abroad? This is one of the multiple questions we will try to find an answer to. 

Portugese only!

Attitudes towards sickness absence

Researchers: 
Charlotte Jais (supervised by Cheryl Haslam), Loughborough University

Brief description: 
I am looking for people who are currently in paid employment to take part in a short (15-20 minute) online survey about attitudes towards sickness absence as part of my MRes Psychology course. This will involve reading a short, fictional story about someone who has taken sick leave from work, after which you will be asked to rate how strongly you agree or disagree with a series of statements based on what you have just read. You will then be asked to do this again after reading a second short story. The third and final component of the survey asks questions about your current job and there are optional questions about your own personal experiences of sickness absence in the workplace. Thank you.
