With an emphasis in Critical Theory, Jacob finished his M.A. with a 3.9 GPA and on the Graduate Dean's List. His thesis read David Foster Wallace's "Infinite Jest" through an ecological lens, arguing that the novel's aesthetic thrust opens its readers to active engagement with the myriad unknowable beings and objects around them.


Projects by Industry
Education

As a budding scholar, Jacob converted his M.A. thesis into a conference presentation and a short article, which he is preparing for publication. Similar to the rest of his scholarly work, this article examines how the aesthetics of a literary work (David Foster Wallace's "Infinite Jest," in particular) can elicit ecological sensibility in its readers.
