Max Jack is an alumnus of the UCSB Ethnomusicology Program (PhD, ‘19) and is currently a researcher at Max Planck Institute in Germany at the Center for the History of Emotions. Dr. Jack’s research focuses on atmosphere and affect theory, anti-capitalist movement, crowds and protest, and music in sport. He has produced publications developing “atmosphere” as a theoretical concept novel to the fields of anthropology and ethnomusicology based on his long-term ethnographic research of hardcore soccer fans in Ireland and Germany.

During the forum, he will give a talk on his experience navigating the job market and getting published as an early-career scholar. He will also outline strategies on how to frame oneself as a candidate to hiring universities, how/when to approach academic journals and academic presses while acknowledging rejection as a ubiquitous feature of an academic job market described as a “jackpot economy” where luck may seem to factor in as much as merit.
