Edward Journey is an educator, administrator, and theatre artist who calls Birmingham, Alabama, “home” although he currently lives and works as a university professor in Huntsville, Alabama. Edward has lived in four of the five largest cities in Alabama as well as in Georgia, Indiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Virginia. His interests are diverse and far-flung but seem to be most focused on the American South. He holds a B.A. in political science and an M.F.A. in theatre — both from The University of Alabama.
“Professional Southerner” is an online journal focusing on topics — Southern and other — that stoke Edward’s interests. He has been told that he has a tendency to “think loudly.” Perhaps, by writing this journal, his loud thoughts will become more specific and defined.
