Professor Greg Lehman is a well-known Tasmanian art historian, curator, essayist and commentator on identity and place. Descended from the Trawulwuy people of north east Tasmania, Greg has an intimate relationship with the island’s Indigenous culture and his creative works explore the impact of colonisation on Tasmania’s social fabric.
Greg was appointed Pro Vice Chancellor, Aboriginal Leadership at the University of Tasmania in January 2020. Prior to this, he was a McKenzie Research Fellow at the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Melbourne. Following his time as an Indigenous Visiting Research Fellow at the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies from 2011-2015, Greg has worked in a number of research roles at the Australian National University’s National Centre for Indigenous Studies and Deakin University’s Institute for Koori Education.
His ongoing research interests include Aboriginal cultural resource and heritage management, colonial and Indigenous contemporary art and Tasmanian history.
