Natalie Bormann joined the Department of Political Science in 2007, after holding positions at Brown University, and the Universities of Manchester and Edinburgh in the UK. She is the author of National Missile Defence and the Politics of US IdentityA Poststructural Critique (Manchester: Manchester University Press, 2008) and co-editor of Securing Outer Space (London: Routledge, 2009). These and other writings explore the constitutive interplay of identity and the politics of security, in which she turns to the more interpretative modes of inquiry provided to us by critical social theory and poststructuralism.
