Nicole Moore is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow in English literary studies at UNSW Canberra. Her main research interest is Australian literature, combined with interdisciplinary and comparative research in cultural history, gender and sexuality studies, and book history, with a special interest in censorship. She is the author of The Censor's Library: Uncovering the Lost History of Australia's Banned Books, which won the Walter McCrae Russell award from the Association for the Study of Australian Literature in 2013, and was shortlisted for a Queensland Literary Award, the Penny Pether prize from the Australian Law, Literature and the Humanities Association, and the Prime Minister's Literary Award in Australian History. Her research pursues issues at stake in the political cultures of writing and reading, and the complex relations of literature and history within and across national boundaries. Through 2014-2018 a Future Fellowship enables her to embark on a biography of the prominent Australian writer Dorothy Hewett.

Nicole is the current President of the Australian University Heads of English association (AUHE) and past Chair of the AUHE Learning and Teaching Committee. She is co-editor of the Studies in Australian Literature series at Anthem Press (London and Melbourne), and serves on the Board of Management for the AustLit electronic resource and the Education and Scholarships Advisory Board for the State Library of NSW. She is a member of the editorial boards of Australian Literary Studies, Hecate: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Women's Studies, the Journal of the Association for the Study of Australian Literature (JASAL) and Studies in Australasian Cinema, and acts as a referee for various national and international presses, journals, and research funding bodies. She has held visiting fellowships at the Menzies Centre, Kings College London; the Faculty of English, University of Cambridge; the National Archives of Australia, and the Humanities Research Centre, Australian National University.
