Tom O'Regan Visiting Fellowship

Thomas (Tom) Andrew O’Regan was Professor of Media and Cultural Studies at The University of Queensland. He was a beloved teacher and mentor, a cherished colleague, and an internationally recognised scholar. 

The aim of this fellowship is to honour the spirit of Tom’s important and enduring legacy of cross-disciplinary research in media, communication, and culture. For Tom, meeting in public lectures, talks and roundtables was the heart of the intellectual life of the university. He attended every talk and lecture he could and was the first to suggest the conversation should continue. 

The fellowship will ensure Tom’s legacy of inviting people to share their ideas, listen thoughtfully and engage with great enthusiasm endures at UQ and in the field.

The selected scholars may explore Tom’s interest areas, including media and cultural studies, criticism and film, and build upon his work. The Fellowship will run annually in close collaboration with his family and friends.
