Ralph Cohen

University of Virginia professor Ralph Cohen was the founding editor of the journal New Literary History. Under Cohen's direction, the journal has evolved into a touchstone for the literary studies community at the university. It has also received international recognition: in 1981, the British Year's Work in English Studies noted that in its first ten years New Literary History"produced much of the best work that was done in literary theory," and in 1999 it was the first English-language literary journal ever to be translated into Chinese.
