Bio/Research

Professor Moore aims to incorporate historical overviews of modernity and communications into courses of all stripes, but his background in math and stats has also led to teaching quantitative methods. Emphasizing service learning and applied practice, for coordinating in teaching Sociology’s methodology curriculum, he and Prof. Noack received the Provost’s Experiential Teaching Award in 2010.

Prof. Moore studies the history of the mass market and urban modernity in North America. Overall, his work argues that amusement and leisure help constitute modern publics by providing spaces, rhetorics, and logics for collective gathering. His previous project was a social history of the first decade of movie-going in Toronto and the Midwest USA, tracing how the novelty of film became a mass practice through showmanship, regulation, and promotion. A new project, collaborating with Prof. Sandra Gabriele, examines the development of the weekend newspaper in the 1890s as a cultural technology, animating modernity, central to the institutionalization of mass society.
