Mandag d. 12. maj 2014

The address is Aarhus University, AU Main Hall, Aulaen, Building 1412, Nordre Ringgade 4
8000 Aarhus.

But it shouldn't be that surprising. In the social sciences it's not a new thing that Denmark and the rest of Scandinavia are significantly culturally different from a lot of other places in the world.

You can't find a country with more general trust, less religiosity, a greater emphasis on equality but also a significant tendency to social reclusiveness and much more. But why are they so different and how do you crack the code of the Danish society?
Dennis Nørmark will give you insight in the Danish culture and provide you with fun facts and useful advice on how to interact with the weird Danes.
Our speaker for this event Dennis Nørmark is anthropologist and Chief Consultant at Living Institute.
Dennis Nørmark is the driving force behind the development and facilitation of Living Institute's many workshops and courses. Dennis Nørmark has been a lecturer at the Department of Anthropology, Aarhus University, for many years and is author of the books 'Cultural Understanding for Stone Age Brains' and 'the Real Man'. He is known to be a highly skilled and entertaining communicator with great learning value.
The seminar is entertaining and relevant for both Expats and Danes - so bring along friends and family!
You don't want to miss this!
