Research Interests

The study of body and culture, following Marcel Mauss’s theoretical perspectives, have been the source of all the issues considered so far, mainly concerned with the study of the relations between body, health, medicine, hygiene and healing processes, culture and society. In this approach, the core of the problems studied are conducted through social and medical practices, concepts, images and representations, socially constructed in Portuguese society, from the middle of the nineteenth century until the middle of the twentieth century. At the same time, the construction of knowledge, photography and printing press, mainly related with body, sport practices, sport’s medicine and sport’s printing press have been pursued since the last five years until the present.

Current Research

Body and Mental Health. What is the relationship between body and mental health?
Research conducted as Associate Fellow of the Center for the History of Medicine, Warwick University, Warwick.
