About the Instructor

Paul K. Saint-Amour is a Professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania. He works on Victorian and modernist literature and has special interests in the novel, law, trauma, visual culture, and sound studies. A few years ago, Saint-Amour chaired a fact-finding panel initiated by the International James Joyce Foundation (IJJF) to study the permissions history and criteria of the Estate of James Joyce and the general problem of scholarly fair use. The panel produced a detailed FAQ, “James Joyce: Copyright, Fair Use, and Permissions.” Saint-Amour is currently a trustee of the IJJF. He was previously an instructor for the Rosenbach’s Ulysses Reading Group.
