S. PHILIP MORGAN

S. PHILIP MORGAN

S. Philip Morgan is Professor of Sociology and Norb R. Schaeffer Professor of International Studies at Duke University. He is former president of the Population Association of America and former editor of the journal Demography. He has chaired the sociology departments at the University of Pennsylvania (1993-96) and Duke University ( 2002-08). Beginning in July of 2008, Morgan assumed directorship of Duke’s Social Science Research Institute.
Morgan’s work focuses on family and fertility change (over time) and diversity (across groups). Much of his work has focused on the United States but he has collaborated on projects focusing on other countries, both developed and developing. Morgan’s recent NIH funded projects focused on developing new models of family and fertility change and diversity, late 20th century fertility trends and differences in the U.S., emerging low fertility in the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the association between fertility intentions and behavior in the United States..
Recent articles include: Morgan, S. Philip and Heather Rackin. 2010. The Correspondence of Fertility Intentions and Behavior in the U.S. Population and Development Review 36:91-118; Morgan, S. Philip, Guo Zhigang and Sarah R. Hayford. 2009. China’s Below Replacement Fertility: Recent trends and Future Prospects.

Hans-Peter Kohler received a M.A. in demography (1994) and a Ph.D. in economics (1997) from the University of California at Berkeley, and is currently the Frederick J. Warren Professor of Demography in the Department of Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania. His primary research focuses on fertility and health-related behaviors in developing and developed countries. A key characteristic of this research is the attempt to integrate demographic, economic, sociological and biological approaches in empirical and theoretical models of demographic behavior.
For example, Kohler has been investigating aspects of the bio-social determinants of fertility, the determinants of low- and lowest-low fertility in Southern and Eastern Europe, the causal effects of education on health, the interrelations between marriage and sexual relations in developing countries, and the role of social interaction processes for fertility and AIDS-related behaviors. He has widely published on topics related to fertility, health, social and sexual networks, HIV/AIDS, biodemography and well-being in leading journals.
Kohler has been awarded the Clifford C. Clogg Award for Early Career Achievement by the Population Association of America, has been a recent fellow at the Center for Advanced Studies at the Norwegian Academy of Science, and he served as the president of the Society of Biodemography and Social Biology.
