Biography

Earning his PhD from Purdue University’s Program in American Studies, Bebout is an associate professor of English at ASU, where he is affiliate faculty with the School of Transborder Studies and the Program in American Studies.  His articles have appeared in Aztlán, MELUS, Latino Studies, and other scholarly journals.  His book, Mythohistorical Interventions: The Chicano Movement and Its Legacies (Minnesota 2011), examines how narratives of myth and history were deployed to articulate political identity in the Chicano movement and postmovement era.  His second book, titled “Whiteness on the Border,” is forthcoming from NYU Press.  This book examines how representations of Mexico, Mexicans, and Mexican Americans have been used to foster whiteness and Americanness, or more accurately whiteness as Americanness.
