Eminent George Moore specialist, Robert Becker, has set up an interactive website, devoted to all things Moore related. The website is a very rich source for art links (over 140 pictures and growing), so he has iconography, bibliography,  history etc.  We much appreciate Bob's specialist knowledge which it will be a valuable resource now and in the future.

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.

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 Trustees of the George Moore Association are honoured and grateful to accept the generous gift of George Moore books from the family of Moore descendant Patricia Deane.  Special thanks are due to them for that kind initiative.  Books from the collection will be used as prizes for conference presentations and publications, particularly focusing on post-graduate students. The association would be pleased to accept any further donation and will distribute such books in the cause of expanding Moore studies.
