Anil Menon

Anil Menon is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Michigan. Before moving to Ann Arbor, he completed an MSc. in Economic History (Research) from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and History from Middlebury College. His core research agenda involves understanding the impact of historical legacies and memories on both past and contemporary political outcomes. One strand of this research explores the long run consequences of historical events on state capacity and economic development. Another seeks to shed light on the persistent impact of traumatic events on the political attitudes of individuals. He is currently working on experimentally ascertaining whether evoking memories can serve as an effective tool for political actors in manipulating public opinion.
