'If you are going to be an artist, you must be ashamed of nothing but to be ashamed.'
Welcome to the George Moore Association
Dedicated to the study of Moore's life and works
As a writer, Moore was a transitional, boundary-crossing figure
From the 19th to the 20th century
Across Ireland, France, and the UK
From naturalism to modernism
From the novel to precursors of 'personal nonfiction'
From sole authorship to collaborative forms of social authorship
From hetero to polyvalent sexualities
There's more, much more
to learn about George Moore...
Portrait of George Moore, by Edouard Manet, May 1879. Museum of Modern Art, NY.
Prof Fabienne Gaspari, (Universite de Paul & Pays de l’Adour), valued member of the George Moore Association, gave a paper at a recent conference in Tours. On the theme of Channel Crossings and Writings, the title of Fabienne’s paper was “An Irish man on the road: George Moore’s Travel Experiences”. Good to know that GM is travelling well in France!
The programme for the SOFEIR conference in Lille, 9-10 March is wide-ranging and impressive – but no sign of a Moore text there this year. Perhaps GM will travel there next year. However, a very important event in Lille will honour GMA trustee Dr Eamon Maher who has mentored students, encouraged academics and contributed an incalculable amount to Franco-Irish studies over decades.
