Research Focus

Glenn Wasson is currently a PhD researcher in History at Queen's University Belfast. His research explores the changing state of the bilateral relationship between the United Kingdom and France in the military field between 1956 and 1963. His thesis centres on the reorientation of both countries' defence policies towards nuclear weapons development following the aftermath of the Suez Crisis, whilst exploring what lessons can be learnt for both nations in the post-Brexit period. Despite focusing on military history, Glenn's thesis also concerns political and international relations in a period where the United States and Soviet Union emerged as dominant superpowers.



Glenn has previously taught as a Teaching Assistant on the module  'History and Historians: Contested Past' and is currently teaching on the module 'Europe between the Wars, 1919-1939.'

In July 2021, Glenn was made an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
