Biography


Ilan Palacios Avineri is a PhD student in the Department of History at the University of Texas at Austin. His research is broadly focused on political ethics, state repression, and bodily autonomy in twentieth-century Central America. Specifically, he is interested in examining how histories of right-wing militarization in Central America can reshape US discussions of moral responsibility regarding contemporary migration from the region.
