Lisa L. Moore is Archibald A. Hill Professor of English, Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies, and Director of the LBTQ Studies Program at The University of Texas at Austin. Her work engages with historical poetics, and draws on other interpretive tools as well, most prominently feminist and queer theory. She is interested in the ways histories of reading, composition and reception draw on submerged associations of received forms to create new political, gendered and sexual meanings in a given moment in which a form becomes prominent or recedes from view. Her current book project, A Lesbian History of the Sonnet, works in this vein. Recent publications in this area include “A Lesbian History of the Sonnet” (Critical Inquiry 2017), The Collected Poems of Anna Seward (ed., Routledge, 2015), and Sister Arts: The Erotics of Lesbian Landscapes (Minnesota, 2011), which won a Lambda Literary Award.
