CAS is pre-consolidated group 2017 SGR 00485 (AGAUR). Also an interdisciplinary group that studies the communication phenomena in the intersection between two areas: communication and advertising, on one hand; and individual and society, on the other hand.

The work of CAS has focused on three branches of study:

  • Tourist brands and place branding.
  • Influence of advertising messages on body image of children and adolescents.
  • Sound studies and psychophysiological measures.

Consequently, it promotes the combined use of quantitative and qualitative techniques in order to achieve a deeper understanding of how communication and advertising influence people’s individual and social behaviour.

The research group belongs to the Department of Communication, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona (Spain).
