Max studies contemporary American popular culture, particularly focusing on popular music and visual media post-WWII. His current project traces alternate formulations of human and posthuman subjectivity forged at the intersection of music and technology in Black Atlantic culture. Methodologically, he draws on cultural studies, film/media theory, and sound studies. Other areas of interest include science fiction, critical theory, contemporary electronic music, and the digital humanities.
