Lisa Moore's current research includes two different projects. The first is the "Intersections of race, racism, and psychodynamic/psychoanalytic theories." This work is a theoretical reflection and examination of public documents drawing on Fanon's theory of phobogenesis to examine the ways major institutional systems (Law enforcement, Government, Education, and Healthcare) draw on constructions of fear to rationalize the dehumanization of Black and Brown bodies.
Her second research project is "Exploring relationships in intentional housing communities in Minneapolis, MN and Chicago, IL." This is a multi-year ethnographic endeavor, partnering with a minimum of three housing communities intentionally designed for LGBT seniors, to explore how relationships are developed and sustained and implications on quality of life. This work is grounded in relational cultural theory and Black feminist theory.
Her past research has included studies examining intergenerational caretaking in public housing and community activism and psychological empowerment.
