Annelies Fryberger holds a PhD in sociology from the EHESS, where she was a member of the Analysis of Musical Practices team at the IRCAM and the Center for Research on the Arts and Language (CRAL) of the EHESS.

Jacob has been part of the SASE team since 2009. His primarily responsibilities include conference coordination, communications, administrative support, website postings, and blog coordination.
Jacob is also a multi-media poet whose work has appeared in/been exhibited at The Paris Review, The Believer, Le Monde, and The Palais de Tokyo, among other venues. He was The Brooklyn Rail’s inaugural Poet-in-Transit, and his collaboration with Camille Henrot, Grosse Fatigue, won the Silver Lion at the 2013 Venice Biennale.
