Anne Elizabeth Moore is an award-winning cultural critic. Her work concerns the impact of political and economic forces on human behavior, including how trade policy and intellectual property rights restrict access to economic and political power along lines of gender, race, and class. Her interdisciplinary research often takes the form of text, but she also works in visual, film, and performance modes. Her work in comics journalism has helped established comics as a non-fiction storytelling medium, and her work with the Ladydrawers Comics Collective—particularly the Truthout series Our Fashion Year—has created an economy for under-represented comics creators; examined gender, race, and sexual bias in the comics industry and other media; and traced the impact of gender bias in cultural production through the international garment and sex trades. Her project during her residency, an expansion of Our Fashion Year, explored changes to men’s fashion in Vienna under an increasingly globalized garment industry.
