October 9, 2014 - 14:15
NIAS – Nordic Institute of Asian Studies and the Centre for Stratification Research at Copenhagen University invite you and others in your network to an open lecture by Catherine Hakim on ‘Erotic Capital in the Northern European and Asian Context’. Thursday, 9th October 2014 at SFI – The Danish National Cente for Social Resarch. Please see the attached e-flyer.
Recently interviewed by DR’s Deadline, Catherine Hakim is a renowned British sociologist and the mind behind the concept Erotic Capital:
“Erotic capital is the unacknowledged but powerful personal asset that counts just as much as educational qualifications for success in jobs, politics, media, sport and the arts. It is a combination of physical and social attractiveness that is just as important as economic, human and social capital for success in all areas of public life, as well as in private romantic and sexual relationships. Like money, attractiveness is transportable, instantly recognisable, so is more universally valuable than qualifications, for example.”
Venue: SFI – The Danish National Centre for Social Research, Herluf Trolle Gade 11, 1052 CPH K
