Nissa Ren Cannon received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her research focuses on transatlantic modernist literature, material culture, and expatriate citizenship, and her work has recently appeared in the Journal of Modern Periodical Studies and symploke.  She is the recipient of a visiting doctoral fellowship from the University of Mannheim, the Albert and Elaine Borchard European Studies Fellowship, and UCSB’s Interdisciplinary Humanities Center Predoctoral Fellowship. Her current project argues that the bureaucratic and literary documents of interwar itinerancy–including passports, travel ephemera, and newspapers–shape expatriation into a distinct mode of national belonging. Prior to beginning her graduate education, Nissa worked in film production in Los Angeles and London.
