Paul Hamill, who retired from the college as director of academic funding and sponsored programs in 2010, recently delivered two addresses to academic conferences in Romania, where he is a Senior Fulbright Fellow.


At Lucian Blaga University in Sibiu, where Hamill teaches American Literature and American Studies, he keynoted a national student conference, “Literature and Music,” with an address entitled “Unheard Music,” which drew on his own poetry. At Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, he took part in two panel presentations at the international conference, “Globalization in a Post-Crisis World.” His formal presentation was entitled “An American Historical Perspective on Globalization.”

A widely published poet who taught in IC’s Department of Writing, Hamill holds a doctorate in American literature from Stanford University. His wife, Kristin, who served for many years as the college’s coordinator of student publicity, is accompanying him in Romania.
