Moore investigates questions about narrative and artifacts by looking at the role of photographic evidence of victim’s injuries in cases of interpersonal assault. In this project she explores the relationships between victim’s own “stories” and the ways in which photos of their bodies are used to narrate how their injuries were acquired.

Finally, she works in collaboration with a number of feminist prison scholars across the country on the Prison Transparency Project.  Her focus is on how prisoners experience imprisonment, as well as exploring human rights abuses.
