Lloyd Davis Memorial Fellowship

The University of Queensland created this Visiting Professorship for leading Shakespeare scholars in 2006, in memory of Associate Professor Lloyd Davis, who died in 2005.

In announcing the Visiting Professorship in 2005, then UQ Vice Chancellor Professor Hay, AC, said the following.

“UQ is committed to the long-term expansion of Shakespeare studies, to build on our international reputation for excellence and the momentum of next year's events. The Lloyd Davis Memorial Visiting Professorship will bring one major world scholar to UQ each year, beginning in 2006, to teach and share their scholarship with our own Shakespeareans.”

Lloyd Davis and Professor Richard Fotheringham secured the VIII World Shakespeare Congress held at Brisbane City Hall in July, 2006 for Brisbane and The University of Queensland.
