The Passing of Stephen F. Cohen


It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our friend and colleague, Stephen F. Cohen. A renowned historian of Russia, Professor Cohen will be remembered as a scholar and teacher, as a powerful public commentator, and as a great friend to NYU’s Russian and Slavic Studies Department, the Jordan Center and the field at large. Our hearts go out to his family during this difficult time.
