"On the Verge of the World: Internationalism in the Text of Modernism"

Associate Professor, University of Houston-Downtown

Paul Kintzele received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 2002 with a dissertation that explores the connections between modernist literature and various theories of internationalism.

He has published articles on the problem of ethics in Conrad's _Lord Jim_ and on the phenomenology of language acquisition in Beckett's experimental novel _How It Is_ (in the _Journal of Modern Literature_ and _Samuel Beckett Today_ respectively).
