As part of the UC Santa Barbara Ethnomusicology Forum, UC Santa Barbara PhD candidate Eugenia Siegel Conte and UC Santa Barbara alumnus Max Jack (Ethnomusicology, PhD 2019) will present a lecture titled "The Art of Making a Scene: Vocal Disruption, Affective Regimes, and Public Space" on Wednesday, May 19, 2021 from 3:30-5 pm PDT via Zoom. Conte and Jack will discuss how they discovered unexpected links between their scholarly interests and have been collaborating to show how space/place, body, voice, and “affective regimes” (Mankekar and Gupta 2016) can lead to a recognition and reorganization of public space through the embodied poetics of voice. They will also talk about the importance of mentorship, friendship, creativity, and collaboration in scholarship.
