More About the Author

Jeffrey H. Jackson is J.J. McComb Chair of History and formerly the Director of the Environmental Studies and Sciences Program at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee.

In 2011, Jackson won the Clarence Day Award for Outstanding Research, Rhodes College's highest honor for faculty. During the fall of 2007, Jackson was a Fellow-in-Residence at the Columbia University Institute for Scholars at Reid Hall in Paris. Also in 2007, the History News Network named Jackson a "Top Young Historian" in the US.

He has published on a range of topics, beginning with his first book "Making Jazz French: Music and Modern Life in Interwar Paris" (2003). Based on this work, Jackson was invited to be a consultant for a documentary entitled "Harlem in Montmartre: A Paris Jazz Story" for "Great Performances" on PBS. He is also the co-editor of a collection of essays entitled "Music and History: Bridging the Disciplines" (2005).

Jackson received his B.S. in history summa cum laude with High Honors from Vanderbilt University in 1993 and a Ph.D. from the University of Rochester in 1999. At Rhodes College, he teaches courses in modern European history, cultural history, French history, and interdisciplinary Humanities. He has received grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Historical Association, and the Sinfonia Foundation.
