Stephen Moore teaches courses in Pacific Northwest history, Canadian history, early U.S. foreign relations, and social studies methods.  A native of the Pacific Northwest, he taught secondary-level social studies in Washington state before returning to graduate school to complete his doctoral work in history.  Following that, from 2000-2004, he was an assistant and associate professor of history at Ohio Northern University, where he taught a wide variety of courses in western civilization, modern U.S. and Latin American history, and social studies education.  He was also the coordinator and advisor for majors in the social studies education program at Ohio Northern.  Prof. Moore's research focus is on the Canadian-American relationship, particularly as it exists west of the Rocky Mountains.  Among his most recent works are "Defining the 'Undefended': Canadians, Americans, and the Multiple Meanings of Border during Prohibition," (The American Review of Canadian Studies, Spring 2004) which won the 2005 Rufas Z. Smith Award for the best article published in ARCS from 2003-2005, and "Cross-Border Crusades: The Binational Temperance Movement in Washington and British Columbia," (Pacific Northwest Quarterly, Summer 2007) which won the Charles Gates Award for the best article published in PNQ in 2007.  He is currently working on a book-length manuscript that explores the Canadian-American relationship in the Pacific Northwest during the prohibition era.  Beyond work, his interests include backpacking, hiking, camping, fly-fishing, and anything else in the outdoors.  Flying airplanes is pretty cool too.
