About the Author

Jaimey Fisher is professor of German and cinema and digital media and director of the UC Davis Humanities Institute at the University of California, Davis. He is the author of Christian Petzold and Disciplining Germany: Youth, Reeducation, and Reconstruction after the Second World War (Wayne State University Press, 2007). He edited the volume Generic Histories of German Cinema: Genre and its Deviations and has also co-edited The Berlin School and its Global Contexts: A Transnational Art Cinema (Wayne State University Press, 2018), among other edited volumes.


The book deftly weaves together discussion of the musical heritages and generational tensions explored in the series with the personal histories of several of the characters, which are based on actual persons. It's clear that Fisher has a genuine knowledge and appreciation of the aesthetic distinctiveness of New Orleans and the series Treme.-- (04/29/2019)
Although it didn't find a very large or long-lasting audience when it originally aired, Treme is a show of great sociological, political, cultural, historical, and aesthetic interest, and it is sure to be watched, studied, and written about for years to come. This book presents a large amount of sociopolitical background and artistic analysis that both scholarly and general viewers should find valuable. It is especially worthwhile in such areas as the show's treatments of music and food and in its discussions of 'distance-witnessing' and 'afterness.'-- (04/29/2019)
