FACULTY PROFILE: Natalie Bormann
Growing up in Langenberg, Germany, in the 1980s and 1990s, Natalie Bormann was occasionally asked if she was related to Martin Bormann. One of the most powerful Nazi party officials and Hitler’s private secretary, Martin Bormann was tried in absentia at the Nuremberg trials, having disappeared shortly after Hitler’s death.
After receiving a masters in English from the University of Toronto in 1968, Kathryn Bloom decided to a take a few years off before pursuing her PhD. A few years turned into four decades and a successful career in public relations, not in the academy. “Life intervened,” Bloom says now.
