Rachel Chin is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Glasgow.

Her research focuses on 20th century Franco-British relations, in particular through the frameworks of conflict and empire. Her book, War of Words: Britain, France and Discourses of Empire during the Second World War (Cambridge University Press, 2022), explores the role of rhetoric as a strategic policy tool in the context of clashes over French imperial territory during the Second World War.

Her research on historic and contemporary Franco-British relations has appeared in The Conversation, Britain and the World, The European Review of History and the Journal of Contemporary History. Rachel’s latest project examines the rhetoric around empire and imperial migration during and after the two world wars.
