Nissa Ren Cannon recently received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and is currently a Visiting Scholar in the department of American Studies at the University of Mannheim. Beginning in August 2018 she will be a Postdoctoral Associate in the Kilachand Honors College at Boston University. Her work focuses on transatlantic modernism, citizenship, and print culture. Her current project, Paper Identities and Identity Papers: Documents of Interwar Expatriation and Modernist Writing, argues that the bureaucratic and literary documents of interwar itinerancy–including passports, travel ephemera, and newspapers–shape expatriation as a distinct mode of national belonging. After completing her BA at UCLA, Nissa worked in film production in Los Angeles and London before beginning her graduate education.
