Prof Moore is the newly appointed Handa Chair of Japanese-Chinese Relations at the University of Edinburgh. He is widely recognized as a scholar who is breaking new ground, a prolific author, and an excellent presenter.
 
His research has focused on the comparative study of life writing among soldiers, children and youth, and civilians during times of war in China, Japan, Russia, and Britain. These documents include published, self-published, and manuscript diaries, letters, and memoirs, as well as crafts, drawings, and material objects. He is currently co-writing a book with Seth Jacobowitz (Yale University) on Japanese popular science, science fiction, and detective novels from the Meiji Period to WWII. His first monograph, Writing War (Harvard University Press, 2013), was a finalist for the RHS Gladstone Prize, and his second book, Bombing the City, which concerns civilian narratives of air raids in Britain and Japan, is to be published by Cambridge University Press at the end of 2017.
