Dennis Moore retires from his "academic home"

Dennis Moore is not just retiring from Florida State University after 28 years of teaching, mentoring, research, and service to the scholarly community at large. He is leaving the Department of English, the place during those nearly three decades that he says “has been an academic home, indeed, my fun home. Full stop.”

“Over the last year, it has become increasingly clear that it’s time to retire and to open up space for another colleague,” Moore says, as he sits in the Williams Building’s fourth-floor Skybox and discusses his career. He expresses appreciation for the department’s decision in the spring of 2019 to hire John Garcia, “a brilliant young Early Americanist and Hispanist,” Moore says. Garcia, from California State University, Northridge, begins teaching as an assistant professor in the fall of 2019. Read more here:
