Born and raised in Dubrovnik, Croatia, Nensi graduated from the Classical Gymnasium in Dubrovnik with a concentration in culture and arts. She relocated to the Bay Area as an international student pursuing a B.A. degree in Spanish Language and Literatures from the University of California at Berkeley. Following her undergraduate studies Nensi earned a Master’s in Library and Information Studies from San José State University, and wrote a thesis entitled “Librocide: Destruction of Libraries in Croatia, 1991-1995.” Together with Vibiana Bowman Nensi co-published the article “Protecting Our Shared Cultural Heritage: An Overview of Protocols and Projects” in Visual Resources. Over the years she has worked at various libraries including University of California at Berkeley, California College of the Arts, and Oakland Public.
Her CCA MA thesis “Dubrovnik under Siege: Artists’ Interactions with the Old City during the Yugoslav Army Aggression 1991-1992” is based on field research conducted in Croatia which includes interviews with local artists who were inspired by the attacks on Dubrovnik. Nensi’s thesis has been translated to Croatian and published in December 2011 by Matrix Croatica (Matica hrvatska) Dubrovnik branch in issue no. 4 of the journal Dubrovnik which is in part dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the attack on Dubrovnik.
