Bio

 

Eduardo Pagán, Arizona State University's Bob Stump Endowed Professor of History, was born and raised in the Phoenix area and began his college career at Mesa Community College. He then received a B.A. from ASU, an M.A. from the University of Arizona, and an M.A. and Ph.D. from Princeton University in U.S. history.

Before returning to ASU, Dr. Pagán served as an assistant dean of students at Princeton, a faculty member at Williams College, and a senior program officer at the National Endowment for the Humanities in Washington, D.C. While at ASU he has served as chair of the Department of Language, Cultures, and History, co-chair of Ethnic Studies, and as President of the West campus Faculty Senate. He has held an NEH Fellowship and was a postdoctoral fellow at Wesleyan University and at the University of California, San Diego.

Dr. Pagán is currently a co-host of History Detectives on PBS, and has worked previously with the award-winning PBS series American Experience as the lead historical consultant for the television episode and Web site entitled "Zoot Suit Riot," based in part on his book Murder at the Sleepy Lagoon: Zoot Suits, Race, and Riot in Wartime L.A(University of North Carolina Press, 2003). He has served as a panelist for the Department of Education, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Arizona Humanities Council, and he has served as a committee member for the Organization of American Historians.

Dr. Pagán is currently working on two book-length projects. The first explores racial constructions and violence in territorial Arizona, and the second is a history of Latino terrorism in the US.

In addition to his numerous scholarly publications, Dr. Pagán also authored Historic Photos of Phoenix, which won the Arizona Book Publishing Association's 2008 Glyph Award, and Remembering Phoenix.

At ASU's West campus, Dr. Pagán teaches classes including "Constitutional History of the U.S.," "The Hispanic Southwest," "American Indians," and "Historical Methods."
