David Simon's America: Special Edition of the European Journal of American Culture

2015 marks the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, an event that devastated New Orleans and surrounding areas. The storm's aftermath threw into relief America's divisions and inequalities, as well as the more dysfunctional aspects of government. Simon addressed the aftermath of Katrina directly in Treme (2010-13), but this series can be seen as part of his ongoing project, notably encompassing The Wire (2002-08), to hold up American institutions and democracy to scrutiny.
