October 24-25, 2019
with sessions at Museo Arqueológico de Almería
Comprising over 50 books, numerous short stories and articles, plays, and even some poetry, the Moore oeuvre invites inspection and responses, particularly from scholars in the fields of literature, history, politics, sociology, music, visual art, and gender studies.
