Profile

Albert G. Way received his Ph.D. in history from the University of Georgia and joined the faculty of KSU in 2011. He teaches classes in recent U.S. history, Georgia History, and Environmental History. Dr. Way’s research interests focus on the environmental and agricultural history of the American South. He is the author of Conserving Southern Longleaf: Herbert Stoddard and the Rise of Ecological Land Management (University of Georgia Press, 2011), and The Art of Managing Longleaf: A Personal History of the Stoddard-Neel Approach (with Leon Neel and Paul Sutter, UGA Press, 2010). He is currently working on a book-length project tentatively titled Not Naturally a Grass Country: Environment, Plant Genetics, and the Quest for Agricultural Modernization in the Humid World, which examines the use of scientific expertise to transform agricultural landscapes in the American South and other humid regions. He has received fellowships from the Smithsonian Institution and the Institute for Southern Studies at the University of South Carolina.
