Post is an associate professor of geography at Kent State University at Stark, with a B.S. in social studies education from the University of Oklahoma and M.A. and Ph.D. in geography from the University of Kansas. His research as a cultural and historical geographer focuses on the heritage of place, particularly as it becomes manifest through commemoration, place naming, and sense of place. Dr. Post has published chapters in the books Company Towns in the Americas and Social Memory and Heritage Tourism Methodologies. He has also published in the journals Area, Professional Geographer, Geographical Review, Journal of Cultural Geography, Journal of Geography, and Historical Geography. He has chaired the Cultural Geography Specialty Group of the Association of American Geographers and serves on the board of the International Society of Landscape, Place, and Material Culture. His two favorite places on Earth are Chicago and the Colorado Rockies. When not teaching, reading, and writing, he spends time with his family and his guitars (which are like an extended family).
