Paul A. Cantor (born 1945) is an American non-marxist literary critic inspired by the Austrian School of economic thought. Educated at Harvard (A.B., 1966, Ph.D., 1971), he has taught for many years at the University of Virginia, USA, where he is the Clifton Waller Barrett Professor of English.

He has written on a wide range of subjects, including Shakespeare, Romanticism, Austrian economics, contemporary popular culture, and relations between culture and commerce. His books include Shakespeare's Rome (1974), Creature and Creator: Myth-Making and English Romanticism (1984), Shakespeare: Hamlet (1989), and Gilligan Unbound (2003).

Cantor was featured in a 2004 article published in Americana: The Journal of American Popular Culture 1900 to Present in which Cantor was described as "a preeminent scholar in the field of American popular culture studies. In a world of categories, labels, genres, Professor Cantor has proven himself to be remarkably resistant, publishing on Oscar Wilde one day, on Salman Rushdie another, on Samuel Beckett another, and then winning the Ludwig von Mises Prize for Scholarship in Austrian School Economics on yet another. His diverse research interests have manifested themselves once again with the publication of his latest book, Gilligan Unbound: Pop Culture in the Age of Globalization, in which he turns his academic eye to four popular American television shows: Gilligan’s Island, Star Trek, The Simpsons, and The X-Files."
