Conrad Phillip Kottak

Conrad Phillip Kottak (born October 6, 1942, in Atlanta, Georgia) is an American anthropologist. Kottak is currently a professor emeritus of anthropology at the University of Michigan, where he has been teaching since 1968. He received his Ph.D. from Columbia University, and he did extensive research in Brazil and Madagascar, visiting societies there and writing books about them.

He then wrote several textbooks, including ''Window on Humanity: A Concise Introduction to Anthropology''; ''Madagascar: Society and History'', and ''Anthropology: The Exploration of Human Diversity'' and ''Cultural Anthropology'', which are often used by colleges and high schools in the United States. He believes that various American legends and stories, such as ''Star Trek'', ''Star Wars'' and the Thanksgiving story are growing into a type of mythology which someday might be comparable to Greek, Roman, or other stories which today are considered to be myths.

Kottak has received several honors for his work. Among these awards is an excellence in teaching award by the College of Literature, Sciences, and the Arts of the University of Michigan in 1992, and the American Anthropological Association (AAA)/Mayfield Award for Excellence in the Undergraduate Teaching of Anthropology in 1999. He was elected to the membership of the National Academy of Sciences in 2008. According to the Open Syllabus Project, Kottak is the most frequently cited author on college syllabi for anthropology courses. Provided by Wikipedia
