Conrad Kottak

Research Affiliate, Population Studies Center.

Professor, Anthropology.

Ph.D., Columbia University

Professor Kottak has done ethnographic field work in Brazil, Madagascar, and the United States.

Recent work includes an investigation of how middle class families draw on various media in planning, managing, and evaluating their choices with respect to competing demands of work and family.
