The 2020 Tom Regan Visiting Research Fellowship, in collaboration with the Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) at the NC State University Libraries, has been postponed until summer 2021. This was a difficult decision for us to make, but we believe it to be for the best. We hope everyone is staying safe at this time. You can read more on the NCSU Library site here. You can learn more about the 2019 fellow, Rachel Robison-Greene, pictured above, here.
The fellowship is in memory of Tom Regan to promote scholarly research in animal rights. It supports the use of the SCRC’s Animal Rights Archive—the largest scholarly archive of animal rights collections in the country. The SCRC builds collections of rare and unique materials to support the research and teaching needs of the university, emphasizing established and emerging areas at the university and corresponding to strengths within the Libraries’ overall collection. These rich collections serve as a foundation for generations of scholarship in animal protection, impacting and supporting scholars from across the nation. The archive offers an unparalleled opportunity for scholars to explore many facets of Tom’s work and the animal advocacy movement through the decades; the Fellowship can help make that happen.
